Environmental Impact Studies


An Environmental Impact Study (EIS) is used to provide a sufficient level of detail to demonstrate that a proposed development will have no negative impacts on the natural features or ecological functions of the subject and surrounding lands. Their purpose is to inform the design and configuration of the development, to avoid negative impacts at the outset and to identify appropriate mitigation and/or compensation for unavoidable impacts. A&A has experience completing EISs for small to moderate development proposals, such as property severances, residential homes and small multi lot developments. A&A staff works closely with municipalities, development companies, home builder and private landowners to ensure that significant natural features are appropriately protected, and impacts mitigated, following all relevant policies and guidelines. We also ensure that all necessary permits are obtained, followed and documented upon completion of these studies.
