Environmental Impact Assessment

The Environmental Assessment process is integral to the planning system in Ireland. The European Commission’s Directive 2014/52/EU was incorporated into Irish law by The European Union (Planning and Development) (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations (2018), which brought a new emphasis on the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR) and EIAR Screening.

FAC has a thorough understanding of EIAR Regulations, documentation requirements and extensive experience of EIS/EIAR management.

We will build-in a gateway assessment of environmental issues, ranging from a ‘tick-box’ no-risk assessment to detailed Screening reports for marginal or significant development proposals that may have environmental implications in terms of EIAR.

FAC team has significant experience in EIAR/EIS including strategic infrastructure development and private sector development projects. Our key services include:

  • Screening;
  • Scoping;
  • Project management;
  • Alternatives;
  • Population and human health;
  • Material assets;
  • Consultation;
  • Non-technical summary;
  • Socioeconomic reporting;
  • GIS analysis and mapping.

FAC has prepared EIAR Screening for public and private sector clients including road schemes, greenways and mixed-used developments.  

FAC has experience in preparing Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of local area plans (LAPs) and masterplans.
