Title: Further guidance on the environmental assessment of projects
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This manual has been produced primarily to provide scoping guidance to developers and/or their consultants on the general concerns of the National Rivers Authority (NRA) for a number of specific types of development types and also for several more general development issues. The guidance notes in this manual complement the (less detailed) scoping guidance provided in an associated manual. The notes presented in Section 4 of this manual, are not intended to replace consultation with specialists from the NRA and/or other organizations, nor are they intended to act as guidance notes to cover all environmental issues. For instance, factors such as the traffic flow implications of a development are not considered (despite their importance), as these are not within the remit of the NRA. The notes are intended to convey issues within the NRAs statutory responsibilities that may commonly arise in connection with certain types of development. The notes are necessarily of a general advisory nature and they should only be used without prejudice in considering individual development proposals. More detailed and possibly alternative recommendations will arise in discussions or negotiations with the NRA on specific proposals.
