Our EIA work covers a range of planning regimes, including Town and Country Planning applications, Transport & Works Act Orders, and Development Consent Orders.

Our EIA teams often work very closely with our engineering and design colleagues, who are delivering the sort of exciting projects you would expect from a global environmental and engineering consultancy with a reputation for developing and implementing innovative solutions to the world’s most complex challenges.
