Environmental Impact Assessment at Amlwch

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is being carried out for the scheme by Hyder Consulting (UK) Ltd.

The EIA assesses the potential impact of the scheme on issues such as quality, noise, landscape, ecology, archaeology / cultural heritage and water quality and identify measures to mitigate any adverse environmental impacts.

The EIA also includes an assessment of the effects on the local economy such as fishing interests.

Throughout the EIA process, consultations were carried out with a range of bodies including the Environment Agency Wales, Countryside Council for Wales and Cadw.
