Grantham - Environmental Impact Assessment

Grantham - Environmental Impact Assessment

We have been involved with this proposed mixed-use housing development on a 47 hectare site to the north of Grantham in Lincolnshire for over 10 years.

As part of the scope, We undertook Environmental Appraisals and a subsequent Environmental Statement. Environmental issues considered within the ES included landscape and visual impacts, ecology and nature conservation, archaeology and cultural heritage (including setting issues of the nearby listed Belton Park), noise and vibration impacts, air quality and dust, soil and land use, hydrology, drainage and flood risk, and geology and hydrogeology.

Jon King provided landscape evidence at a subsequent public inquiry relating to non-determination of the application. The landscape evidence was accepted at the inquiry although the site was deemed to have been put forward prematurely within the plan process.
