How can SLR Help?
Clients are typically developers or industrial clients, but SLR also provides pragmatic reviews of EIA work to regulators and other interested parties. SLR’s SEA clients tend to be governmental and regulatory bodies that wish to assess the impacts of their policy-making guidance and decisions.
SLR can manage and deliver an entire EIA project from concept, pre-feasibility through to feasibility using experienced EIA project managers and its teams of technical specialists; or our technical experts can provide input on one or more discrete EIA topics. We also have key staff that are able to provide technical peer review as may be required for the more contentious projects to ensure that the assessment is robust and thorough.
SLR’s approach to EIA work is iterative, working constructively to assess impacts and then to optimise project proposals to minimise those impacts whilst maintaining project viability. SLR’s EIA managers have expertise in specific business sectors which they use to work pro-actively with their colleagues and clients to achieve a positive outcome.
Many of SLR’s technical experts are practised at presenting technical evidence to regulatory bodies at decision making hearings as professional and/or judicial expert witnesses.
- Full EIAs or free-standing technical reports from in-house experts.
- Many technical disciplines also have expert witness experience that can assist on more complex and contentious developments.
- Providing planning and environmental support for a range of development schemes.
