Screening and scoping opinions
These are opinions issued by the planning authority under the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017.
A screening opinion states whether the Authority or Secretary of State considers that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) should be submitted for a future or current development proposal.
A scoping opinion refers to the range of issues which the Authority or Secretary of State considers should be contained in an EIA.
An EIA is subject to consultation with the Environment Agency and Natural England. Further information about what EIA is and the process that we have to follow is available on the Planning Practice Guidance.
