Barry is once again taking part in the LI CPD Day – this time at the fabulous Eden Project, near St Austell Cornwall. His talk is on the effective delivery of EIA. The session will provide a review of procedures, legislation and regulations, impacts and effects and the interface with design and development. There will be guidance on the process of screening and scoping and the key issues to address, the content of the Environmental Statement and implications for the project programme.
A review of selected case studies, illustrating projects of different type and scale will demonstrate how the process is applied and also illustrate the development of design alongside the impact assessment and how the design can benefit from a well-coordinated assessment and mitigation proposals. Finally there will be a more detailed look at key issues for the assessment of landscape as part of the overall process.
Barry has been a key contributor to a number of technical seminars for landscape architects, engineers and planners, including to the last few LI CPD days. A pdf of his presentation will soon be available as a download from this site.
