The proposed development does not exceed any of the thresholds outlined in the Roads Act 1993-2007 that would trigger a mandatory requirement to prepare an EIA Report
An ecological report was prepared for the proposed greenway and this was accompanied by a Stage 1 AA Screening Report. The AA states it is considered that the proposed works do not require progression to second stage Appropriate Assessment
The proposed greenway through the pNHA is to be located on a raised boardwalk
The proposed development Under Section 50 (1) (c) of the Roads Act 1997-2007 and the guidance contained in Section 1 and 2 of the Screening Report is unlikely to have a significant effect on the environment.
This EIA Screening Report concludes that an EIA for the proposed development is not required.
