Environmental Impact Assessment of Reserved Matters Applications - Public Consultation Document

Published on Mon, 17 Dec 2007
The purpose of this consultation is to obtain views on the Department's proposals for amending the Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations (NI) 1999 to take account of two judgements of the European Court of Justice in May 2006.
This consultation ended on Mon, 11 Feb 2008

These require that, where development consent comprises a multi-stage consent process (such as in an application for outline planning permission, where following outline consent, application has to be made to the planning authority for approval of certain reserved matters), the requirements of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) must be applicable at the later stage.
The draft regulations also provide for EIA to be applied in relation to conditions attached to certain full planning permissions, which require the submission of certain detailed matters and their approval by the planning authority before the development can proceed.
