News from EIA and Planning

Posted by Roderick Ellison - MSc BSc (Hons) AIEMA on 2/08/2011

Since our last update our EIA team has been involved in both challenging project work and researching emerging policy and environmental design tools. Project work has been diverse and has included appointments ranging from leisure and commercial development through to detailed input into planning the new Taunton Academy. The Taunton Academy project is a great example of the integrated environmental service Ecosulis now offers saving our client money and time by coordinating support. For this scheme our project manager is overseeing technical inputs including ecology, transport, noise, ground conditions (including site investigations) and arboricultural.

In a similar vein our pragmatic support has been well received by a national firm of solicitors. For this contract we provided expert testimony defending their client against Environment Agency prosecution. For this contract we quickly mobilised a national expert and managed to reduce the fine imposed on their client.
