Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is employed by Planning Authorities and Developers as a method of ensuring that the likely effects of new development on the environment are fully understood and taken into account before planning permission is given for a development to proceed.

With certain types of Development, Planning Authorities are not permitted to grant planning permission without taking into consideration environmental information and the onus is on the Developer to demonstrate the environmental acceptability of their proposals. This information is normally compiled in the form of an Environmental Statement (ES) and any additional information subsequently requested and submitted to Planning Authorities.
