Construction Environmental management plan in London

Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMPs) are often added as a planning condition when you receive your decision notice for planning. If the LPA asks for it you will need to get one produced. The report will get sent to the LPA for review.

Planning Applications: Construction Environmental management plan in London

Construction Environmental Management Plans set out the steps a construction project will take to avoid, minimize, or mitigate any adverse effects on the environment and the surrounding area.

The plan is designed to ensure that the project adheres to environmental commitments as outlined in an environmental statement or policy. Sometimes it needs updating throughout the project.
Following the approval controls must be put in place to manage the environmental impact of the construction program.

So things like wheel washing, acoustic shielding, and water run-off. Other things like monitoring of noise, dust, and surface water releases from construction activities can be required.

During the initial phases of construction, ground clearance works may require an ecological clerk of works to ensure that biodiversity impacts are minimized.

Need a Daylight/sunlight survey?

The Enviropass team can help.

Some development projects require a daylight and sunlight assessment as part of the planning application to the local planning authority.

A daylight and sunlight assessment is a technical document that analyses the potential impact of a development on the daylight, sunlight and overshadowing on the surrounding properties. It also determines if your proposal meets requirements for its own sunlight, daylight and overshadowing needs.

Local planning authorities will often request daylight and sunlight assessments from a developer.

The normal assessment method for daylight and sunlight assessments regarding applications for planning permission uses ‘Site Layout Planning for Daylight and Sunlight’, formerly referred to as BRE 209.

Experts in the industry follow the guidelines set out by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) when it comes to daylight and sunlight and acquiring planning permission. The Enviropass team sticks to the guidelines as proposed by the BRE helping your scheme meet these standards and allowing you to get planning permission.

In the process of a daylight and sunlight assessment, factors such as building height, distance to boundaries, orientation, topography, room dimensions, window heights, reflectance values of materials, nearby trees and more all go into the assessment.

Enviropass can provide detailed Daylight and Sunlight assessments using relevant software.

We can interact with the local authority on your behalf to keep you compliant with the local planning authority.

Daylight/Sunlight assessment start from £750 but quotes are site and proposal specific. So please contact us on 0203 488 0225.

Enviropass can produce landscape assessments and landscape visual impact assessments for clients.

If the LPA required a Landscape assessment we can help you. We have in depth expertise in producing Landscape assessment for many local authorities in the UK.

Local Planning Authorities often request Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments (LVIAs) to accompany planning applications that may have potential visual and landscape impacts.

We take an integrated approach to landscape assessment. This involves input from landscape architects and planning consultants.

An LVIA is a comprehensive assessment that covers the effects of the proposed development on the landscape character of the site, as well as the effects on visual amenity. It identifies potential effects on notable receptors and provides guidance and mitigation to prevent negative impacts on the local landscape character and visual amenity.

Landscape Character Appraisals or Assessments are required to understand the local landscape character of an area and inform planning decisions. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires proposed developments to take into account the intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside.

A Landscape Assessment (LA) is a shorter report that assesses the site within the context of the surrounding area and includes a thorough desktop study of the existing condition, consideration of the landscape impact of the proposed development, and recommendations for mitigation proposals to enhance the overall visual impact and biodiversity of the proposal.

An LVIA is a more thorough assessment often needed for major developments or in a location where there might be significant landscape impact. It clarifies the development's impact on the landscape and the visual impact.

Our team has proven experience in carrying out LVIAs across a range of sectors, including residential, commercial, industrial and energy projects.

Our assessments are supported by zones of theoretical visibility, report findings, summary tables, diagrams, and photomontages, and we work with specialist graphic designers and illustrators to provide high-quality 3D visualizations, verified views, and accurate visual representations in accordance with best practice.

We take a collaborative approach when working on all landscape projects.

Landscape assessments start from £800 but quotes are site and proposal specific so please call us on 0203 488 0225 for more information.

Odour can be produced in various processes such as commercial kitchens, livestock rearing, food manufacturing and waste management. The impact of odour on local amenities can be a significant consideration in the planning process and may result in complaints.

Odour assessments are typically required if the proposed development is likely to generate odour or if the development is situated in close proximity to an odour source.

Our team will help you meeting the odour assessment requirements for your planning application. This would include:

Preparation of appropriate odour assessment tools
Odour assessment criteria, including receptor sensitivity, odour exposure, and magnitude
Odour management plans
Odour screening assessments

This type of odour assessment is used to determine whether an odour source requires detailed dispersion modelling and has been employed to evaluate various odorous sources.

The screening methodology may involve assessing the impact of exposure through FIDOL assessment, which considers factors such as Frequency, Intensity, Duration, Offensiveness, and Location. Other screening tools are available, such as the Simple Calculation of Atmospheric Impact Limits (SCAIL).

Detailed odour modelling requires emission data about the odour under investigation. If published data is unavailable, sampling and odour measurement may be necessary.

Once emission data and technical information about the process, such as stack location and size, are available, we can complete modelling of potential impacts using software and provide advice on odour management and mitigation. Throughout the process, we work closely with local authorities to ensure that the odour assessment we produce meets their criteria and avoids delays to your project.

We work across various sectors. These include Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Energy and Agricultural projects.

Odour assessment start from £650. Quotes are specific to the site and proposal so call us today for a quote. We will respond within 1hr.

Industrial Noise

Could you need an industrial noise assessment? Here are some common situations where a BS4142 noise survey might be necessary:

If you're planning to build a new industrial or commercial development near existing residential areas
If you have new or existing plant and machinery that could create noise
If you're dealing with chiller, air-conditioning, or condenser noise breakout
If you have commercial or industrial ventilation noise breakout
If you're experiencing noise breakout from fans, extraction systems, or generators
If you want to assess an existing industrial or commercial site and get advice on noise control
If you've received complaints from local residents about noise
If you're dealing with loading and unloading operations in factories, warehouses, depots, or other industrial facilities

The BS4142 noise assessments involve a formal and approved method of evaluating the impact of industrial or commercial noise, as outlined in the British Standard BS4142:2014. This standard aligns with the current UK planning guidance and Environment Agency requirements on noise assessments.

We are here to make your scheme compliant.

The industrial noise assessment process typically includes measuring the existing (baseline) noise at the site, assessing the noise impact of the proposed project or development, checking the noise data using industry-leading 3D modeling software, and providing a comprehensive technical noise impact assessment report. If necessary, recommended mitigation measures will also be included.

These reports are sent to the LPA for approval as part of your planning application.

The team at Enviropass have years of experience in dealing with Local Planning authorities (especially those based in London). We can help ensure your planning permission succeeds and is not held back due to issued with industrial noise.

Industrial Noise survey start from £450 but quotes are specific to the site and proposal. So please call us on 0203 488 0225 for a quote.
