Greengage undertook an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) screening exercise for the redevelopment of a hospital site for a residential scheme.

The screening report concluded that no formal EIA was required and that environmental issues on the site could be addressed through separate reports. This position was agreed with the planning authority. The separate environmental reports covered potential impacts on air quality, archaeology, ecology, ground conditions and flood risk.

Key environmental issues were

  • Ecology;
  • Transport;
  • Air Quality;
  • Flood Risk;
  • Contamination; and
  • Archaeology.

Greengage project managed the environmental input for the planning submission, liaising directly with the technical teams and key stakeholders.
