Development, Planning and Environmental Impact



A comprehensive environmental impact assessment is key to ensuring your maritime development has a smooth journey through the planning and consent process.

We recommend seeking our advice early in the application process. This can minimise the risk of discovering unexpected archaeological material and avoiding costly delays.


Services include

  • Environmental impact reports and services:

    We can provide consultancy, scoping input, brief and specification development, written schemes of investigation, full heritage assessment, impact, and monitoring services.

  • Baseline conditions, impact assessments and mitigation:

    Review of baseline conditions assesses the known and potential archaeological and palaeoenvironmental resource within a development area to enable assessment of potential impacts, along with the development of mitigation requirements. We have experience in projects of a range of scales (from marinas to whole regions) and in a range of offshore, nearshore, and coastal environments.

  • ES Contributions:

    Based on the results of technical reports MA Ltd can provide Environmental Statement sections, and these can be stand alone or integrated with the results of other environmental studies based on your requirements.
