Continued survey work has since been undertaken, in order to build a thorough understanding of the Site. A wealth of data and information has also been collected. The findings from this work, together with feedback from key consultees and the local community, has been considered during the design development process and is reported in the EIA Report which forms part of our planning application.

Follow surveys, extensive design work was undertaken to optimise the balance between the site performance and environmental effects. This process identified measures to eliminate, avoid, reduce and / or mitigate any potentially significant effects where possible.

Whilst the design of the development was evolving, work was ongoing with regards to the ‘Environmental Impact Assessment’, otherwise known as the ‘EIA’. The EIA is a series of assessments of the potential environmental effects of a project, undertaken by specialist environmental and technical consultants. The full EIA Report can be seen on this website.
