No5 Barristers' Chambers - Excellence is at the heart of everything we do.
Background

Environmental Assessment

Our team advises on all scales and types of environmental impact, including on complexities arising under the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Habitats Regulations. No5’s barristers have appeared in many leading cases on these issues, which have shaped the UK’s EU-derived legislative framework.

Our expertise in environmental assessment extends to water and nutrient neutrality, with barristers frequently advising clients on strategy and representing developers, public bodies, and third parties at appeal.

Members’ advisory experience also includes forthcoming legislative changes and the development of the new system of Environmental Outcomes Reports.
