Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) scoping opinions

Before submitting a planning application, the applicant (or agent, where applicable) may wish to contact us for a formal opinion on which information to supply in the Environmental Statement (or 'ES') - this is called a 'scoping opinion'.

This allows the applicant/agent to be clear about what the we consider the main effects of the development are likely to be and, therefore, the areas on which the ES should focus.

If we decide that further information is required to be able to adopt a scoping opinion, we will ask the applicant/agent to provide it. Consultation bodies and the applicant or agent will be consulted before adopting its scoping opinion.

We must adopt a scoping opinion within 5 weeks of receiving a request (or, where relevant, of adopting a screening opinion). This period may be extended if the authority and applicant or agent agree in writing.
