Outline planning permission is an initial form of permission to get feedback as regards of the scale and nature of the development.

An EIA is the assessment of the environmental consequences of a plan, policy, program, or actual projects prior to the decision to move forward with the proposed action.

The district council will make a final decision on the EIA by Friday, December 23.
