As the resources of Planning Authorities are increasingly challenged the use of external, independent, consultancy based monitoring teams is providing an effective means of fulfilling statutory/planning requirements in an auditable and robust manner.
Conditioning the need for monitoring/compliance requires developers to meet the costs, and ensures that environmental management is embedded in project implementation from the outset.
Ironside Farrar has developed specialist reporting in
Environmental Monitoring, Auditing and Planning
Monitoring Officer (PMO) Services to assist clients
fast-track planning and project delivery.
Each project has a single nominated Planning Monitoring Officer, supported by a team of experienced professionals, including on-call specialists in ecology, air quality, noise etc, depending on the specific issues to be addressed. The approach is efficient; auditable and brings simplicity and improved communications to the planning process.
