Laverstoke Mill

JFA Environmental Planning are currently supporting the site’s restoration with an EIA for comprehensive re-development which takes into account and enhances the habitat for a range of aquatic species.

The needs of crayfish and otters, among other key riparian species have been considered on this important chalk stream in southern England.

Here the close relationship between development and the stream course is illustrated. This challenges the EIA process in ensuring that mitigations take potential impacts of both the construction phase into account, when plant will be working close to the river, and later occupation stage, when human activity can also affect aquatic plants and animals.
