Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA)​


Flynn Furney Environmental Consultants have extensive experience of undertaking EcIAs for a variety of projects.

Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) is a process of identifying, quantifying and evaluating any potential effects of proposed developments on habitats, species and ecosystems. The findings of an assessment can help the competent authorities understand ecological issues when determining planning applications for consent.

EcIA can be used for the appraisal of projects of any scale, including the ecological component of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).

When undertaken as part of an EIA, EcIA is subject to the relevant EIA Regulations. Unlike EIA, EcIA on its own is not a statutory requirement.

It is an evaluation process undertaken to support a range of assessments.
