Screening and scoping opinions
A screening opinion allows applicants to find out whether a proposal requires an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) before making a planning application. Only developments which may have a significant environmental effect require an EIA to be produced. If an EIA is required for a development, applicants can seek advice on what needs to be included by requesting a Scoping Opinion.
The list below contains EIA screening and scoping opinions issued by Worcester City Council in the last 2 years.
You can find further guidance about EIAs and preparing the Environmental Statement on the gov.uk website.
