197. Oxford Parkway Railway Station and Corridor: (EIA)

Description

The purpose of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is to establish the likely impact of a development on the environment. It predicts possible impacts on habitats, species and ecosystems, and helps decision makers decide if the project should go ahead. An EIA also addresses the mitigation of potential environmental impacts associated with the development. The report should provide a non-technical summary at the conclusion so that lay-people and the media can understand the implications of the development.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• Construction facilities.
• Code of Construction Practice.
• Land use.
• Noise and sight impacts.
• Ecology.
