Local Authority and Regional Assembly Staff Training Webinar on Appropriate Assessment: Updates and Learnings from Current Practice

No dates are currently scheduled for this listing

The presentation will be delivered by Paul Scott, Head of the Ecological Guidance and Advisory Unit in the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. Paul will explain the fundamental principles that planners and Appropriate Assessment practitioners need to be aware of and he will summarise the current state of play of good practice in screening for Appropriate Assessment and review of Natura Impact Statements and Reports. It is intended that Paul’s presentation will supplement the knowledge and awareness of those already undertaking Appropriate Assessment as well as providing a useful foundation for those new to the topic.

The presentation will give an overview of:

• The fundamentals of Appropriate Assessment Screening;

• Key terminology and legal tests to be met;

• How to recognise good practice in Appropriate Assessment documentation; and

• Making Appropriate Assessment for plans and projects efficient.

The presentation will be followed by a Questions and Answers session where Paul will be joined by colleagues from the Ecological Guidance and Advisory Unit of the NPWS to answer any questions that arise.
