Event Details

The European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University has partnered up with URS Infrastructure & Environment Ltd to provide expert planning and permitting support and guidance for companies and organisations interested in bioenergy development.

The workshop will provide participants with a good understanding of how the planning and environmental permitting systems work.  Case-study examples of first-hand experiences by URS consultants will be discussed along with the commonly experienced ‘pitfalls’ of the planning and permitting application processes.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Introduction to the planning system
  • Planning policy
  • Planning applications
  • Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
  • Introduction to the environmental permitting system
  • Permit applications
  • Regulatory guidance

The workshop will be interactive with plenty of opportunities to ask questions throughout.  Attendees will also be offered the opportunity to sign up for free 1:1 advice on planning and permitting to help move projects forward.
