Assignment Description
Background
The assignment is designed to examine in detail aspects of EIA and other environmental assessment and management techniques that have
been covered as group work activities within lectures/workshops. A number of Environmental Impact Statements relating to facilities have been
reviewed in groups using the Lee & Colley Environmental Statement Review Package. Each group will be expected to make a short presentation
th
(10-15 minutes) outlining the key findings of their review on Thursday 6 November 2014 in the 14:00-17:00 session. The presentation is an
opportunity for you to present your findings to your peers and to develop relevant academic skills through formative assessment. I will provide
feedback on group achievements so that you can consider this in the preparation of the summative assessment exercise. Marks for the
formative exercise will not be recorded within your record of achievement on the module.
Summative Assessment
In this summative exercise you should assume that you have been appointed by the project developer to contribute to the EIA process and the
subsequent measures for environmental assessment and management during construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of the
facility. The assignment requires you to write a structured report to the client, which addresses tasks 1-3 below.
Tasks
1. Using your project as an example, briefly distinguish between Schedule 1 and 2 projects under the Town and Country Planning
(Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011.
2. Critically assess the identified strengths and shortcomings of the Environmental Impact Statement for your designated project. In addressing
this task you should consider:
a. The appropriateness of methods and techniques used to gather, analyse and present environmental information;
b. The quality of data and information presented together with treatment of uncertainties;
c. The appropriateness and clarity of criteria used to make judgements about environmental impact significance;
d. The range and characteristics of environmental impacts addressed including the treatment of indirect and cumulative impacts;
e. The incorporation of stakeholder views and perceptions in the assessment;
f. The presentation of environmental information.
3. Discuss and evaluate options and measures for the environmental assessment and management of the facility during its subsequent
operation taking account of issues raised in the Environmental Statement.
Learning outcomes
On completion of the module students will be able to:
1. Critically assess the relative merits of different tools and approaches available to the business community in responding to pressures to
improve environmental performance and promote corporate social responsibility (ILO 3);
2. Plan, apply and evaluate environmental assessment methodologies and management strategies to evaluate the performance of the
business community in addressing the sustainability agenda (ILO 4);
3. Formulate, implement and evaluate stakeholder engagement strategies (ILO 6);
4. Effectively communicate ideas in a variety of forms for a range of recipients (ILO 7).
