HRA PLANNING provides integrated ‘Town Planning’ and ‘Environmental Planning’ services in response to the increasing environmental impact assessment requirements as part of the Plan making, and planning permission and development process.
HRA PLANNING has the expertise to determine the nature and extent of environmental assessment requirements early in the process and to inform the preparation of the Plan or Project at initial stages.
Such environmental requirements include, ‘Environmental Impact Assessment’ [EIA], ‘Appropriate Assessment’ [AA] and other ecological reporting which might be necessary to comply with the Planning requirements and, necessary to provide the evidence to secure planning permission.
HRA PLANNING hold professional qualifications and offer a wealth of experience in undertaking Environmental Impact Assessment and preparing Environmental Impact Assessment Reports (EIARs) for various landuse activities and development projects. We have project managed and have prepared EIARs and AAs for numerous development sectors including; residential, commercial, industrial and retail, extractive and waste management industries, and, port and marine development.
Our approach is based on our inherent understanding of existing and new EIA provisions and familiarity with the Planning system and Planning legislation under which EIARs and AA will be assessed, and, planning permission will be based.
