Amendments to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Regulations that were agreed by the European Parliament in 2014 are required to be transposed into UK legislation (even after the Brexit referendum) by 16th May 2017.
In the beginning of December, the Scottish and Welsh Governments published draft revised EIA Regulations but the English revisions are still awaited. The consultation on implementation of these regulations in England were issued on 14 December. The implementation of the proposed regulations will have a significant influence on EIA practices in England.
