The New EIA Regulations 2017 – it should be business as usual
Like you, staff at SLR are receiving many briefings being circulated about the new EIA Regulations. Much of the comment appears to be raising the potential for concern, pushing those developing projects to seek additional advice that in reality may well be unnecessary. Our perspective is that if you were already pro-actively applying the old EIA Regulations to the specific advantage of your project, then the new regulations change little.
To read further thoughts from our EIA tea on these new regulations please read the full briefing note here.
