Environmental Impact Assessment

Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is “the process of identifying, predicting, evaluating and mitigating the biophysical, social and other relevant effects of developments prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made” (IAIA 1999).

When preparing an EIA, our focus is on developing agreed terms of reference between our clients and the approval authority which are appropriate to the specific nature and scale of the activity and that the cost and implications of project approval are fair and reasonable.

Aspect Environmental have extensive experience in the following sectors:

  • Industrial and commercial
  • Water and wastewater
  • Property Development
  • Energy
  • Aviation
