Environmental Services

Our environmental services include:

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIAR)

Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIA)

Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) is a process of identifying and evaluating potential effects of development and proposed actions on habitats, species and ecosystems. The findings of an assessment can help clarify ecological issues when determining planning consent. EcIA can be used for the appraisal of projects of any scale including the ecological component of Environmental Impact Assessments. Unlike an EIAR, an EcIA on its own is not a statutory requirement. It is an evaluation process to support an assessment and planning application.

Enviroguide Consulting has a team of ecologists available to assist you in the compilation of an EcIA.
