Habitats Regulations Assessment of air quality impacts

Recent legal judgments have changed and clarified the way we account for air quality impacts through the HRA process. At the same time, new techniques are emerging which enable planners and developers to be much more robust in dealing with air pollution impact pathways in HRAs. Organisations that fail to keep abreast of such changes face the risk of significant challenge to their plans.

This webinar drew on Ricardo’s experience of carrying out HRAs for strategic plans and our leading-edge expertise for air quality assessments.

Our experts routinely collaborate with strategic planners and Natural England personnel to agree and deliver best approach assessments, in addition to resolving specific client issues through targeted surveys and analysis. Webinar presenters will draw on real-life examples of HRA studies carried out by Ricardo, which are described by our clients as “high quality and extremely thorough” and “presented in a way which is clear and easy to follow.”

The webinar was intended to help planning authorities to understand:

  • The implications of recent legal judgments on the HRA regulatory landscape
  • The various elements needed to deliver a robust and compliant HRA
  • Emerging solutions and techniques for assessing air quality impacts on designated sites
