What is an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)?

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process of evaluating the likely environmental, social and economic impacts of a proposed project or development prior to decision-making. It aims to predict environmental impacts at an early stage in project planning and design, find ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shape projects to suit the local environment and present the predictions and options to decision-makers. An Environmental Statement (ES) is a document that reports the EIA process and its outcomes.

How to find out who has been consulted?

A full list of those notified and consulted on this proposed development can be found on the application via the 'Consultees and Comments' tab. 

When and how will the application be determined?

The application will be thoroughly reviewed and the comments sought from a wide range of the interested parties, including residents, adjoining local authorities and parish councils, and statutory and non-statutory consultees. When Council staff are in a position to make a recommendation on the proposed development, a full report will be be presented to the Eastleigh Local Area Committee. Those residents and interested parties who have made representation on the proposed development will be invited to attend and participate in the Council meeting. The date and venue of this committee remains to be agreed.
