The purpose of impact assessment is to ensure that decision-makers take account of the possible negative or positive impact that a project may have on the environment. Milner Ecology Ltd has been involved with the ecological aspects of many Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for large developments and land use change. We can provide full Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIA) or specific input as part of larger reports.
Our ecological evaluation, impact assessment and mitigation designs follow the IEEM Guidelines for Ecological Assessment in the United Kingdom (2006), wherever practicable.
The final stage of our approach involves working with appropriate stakeholders to ensure they understand the possible effects of the development. We can then ensure the best approach to mitigation is fully understood and implemented.
We are also able to offer long-term, post-construction monitoring if requested by LPAs and SNCOs - a complete, turnkey solution that ensures consistency across your project, its recommendations and implementation.
