Environment & Ecology

Environmental Impact Assessment


A heritage railway society were planning a 2km railway including sidings workshop and visitor facilities, partly on undeveloped agricultural land, the remainder on a previous disused railway route, including high historic viaduct, embankment and cuttings.


Our solution


EES carried out assessments for planning policy, land use, ecology, protected species including badgers bats and otter, soils and contamination, agriculture, hydrology and flood risk and coordinated landscape &visual assessment. 

These led to the production of an informal Environmental Statement as part of the successful planning application.


Mitigation proposals included a Landscape Mitigation Scheme, and Management Plan, now being implemented.


And the benefits


The practical and thorough assessment process, and close liaison with the client engineers and planners and regulators, provided a smooth passage through the planning process.  The Mitigation plan shares the same practical approach.
