Environmental Impact Assessment Changes

Welsh Government is consulting on proposed changes to the thresholds for requiring EIAs.  The threshold for industrial estate development would rise from 0.5ha to 5.0ha, and for urban development proposals from 0.5ha to 1.0ha if no dwellings proposed, or 150 dwellings, or 5.0ha.  Details at http://gov.wales/consultations/planning/eia-regulations-and-local-development-orders/?lang=en.  Deadline for responses 18 June.
