SE0914D-Efficient EIA Screening – Responding to DCLG’s Consultation

On 31st July the Communities and Local Government Department (DCLG) launched a technical consultation on the English planning system, including proposals to amend the EIA screening process for housing developments and industrial estate proposals.

This 2 hour workshop is aimed at those involved in EIA who wish to discuss the consultation and wider potential efficiencies achievable by amending the EIA Regulations.

The Treasury and DCLG flagged changes to the EIA screening system back in autumn 2012. However, the proposals that have emerged over 18 months later appear rather tame:

Increasing the threshold for housing projects from 0.5ha to 5ha, with up to 1ha of commercial development

SE0914B-Delivering Sustainability – Developing Organisational Capability

This IEMA workshop will begin by setting out the global trends that will affect all business and drive the need for enhanced environment and sustainability capabilities in and between organisations. The workshop will include group discussions to identify what organisations are already doing in this area, how it is monitored and managed and how drivers, such as the competence and awareness clauses in DIS 14001, could influence future actions.

By attending this workshop you will get a greater appreciation of the action you can take to develop the environment and sustainability capabilities in your organisation. The outcomes of the workshop will feed into the development of IEMA’s forthcoming position statement - Skills for the Sustainable Economy, which will be launched in December.

WEB0914 Effective Noise IA

In October, IEMA will launch its long awaited Guidelines in Environmental Noise Impact Assessment. Prior to the launch, this webinar will present case studies of the effective assessment of noise within EIA.

With an increasing population, increasing evidence of the health consequences of noise impacts and an expectation to consider human health impacts in the amended EIA directive, noise is a subject that will only become of greater relevance to consenting. And with noise IA chapters found in over 90% of EIA, learning about effective approaches to practice is a clear area for enhanced knowledge.
