We provide pragmatic, client-focused solutions for Environmental impact assessment (EIA) to support and facilitate development projects throughout the UK.

A well-scoped and technically compliant EIA is a crucial stage in the preparation of a successful planning application. ADAS employs a national team of EIA experts, backed by specialists in each of the key subsidiary disciplines including landscape, cultural heritage, ecology, and air and water quality. Our EIA consultants work closely with our in-house planning team to ensure that a strong planning focus is maintained throughout.

We are one of the UK’s leading independent providers of EIAs, having completed more than 50 Environmental Statements over the past three years across a wide range of development sectors including agriculture, energy, infrastructure, residential and waste.

Always open, proactive and pragmatic in our approach to EIA, we work closely with both clients and consultees to set, agree and achieve project scopes.
