Moving towards Environmental Outcomes Reports (EOR)

The UK government is replacing Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) with Environmental Outcome Reports (EORs). The new approach is designed to provide developers with greater certainty, reduce legal risks, and enhance the accessibility of environmental information. We’re supporting clients to understand this fundamental change replacing over thirty years of practice and case law.
