The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) determines how the project will impact the environment.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) regulations apply to 4 types of forestry project:
Afforestation – this is sometimes needed when creating a new woodland.
Deforestation – felling trees in order to use the land for a new purpose.
Forest roads – the formation, alteration or maintenance of private ways on land used or land that will be used for forestry purposes.
Forestry quarries – quarrying to obtain materials required for forest roadworks on land that is used or will be used for forestry purposes or land held or occupied within the land.
Creating a new woodland is afforestation, therefore it requires an EIA from the Environment Agency. Glorious Woodlands will contact the Environment Agency and carry out any work required for this assessment.
