A Stage II Screening for Appropriate Assessment is referred to as a Natura Impact Statement – NIS – or simply a Natura Impact Report (NIR).
How is this different to a Stage I Appropriate Assessment?
Well the fundamental difference is an NIS includes Mitigation Measures whereas a Stage I Appropriate Assessment will not. Mitigation can be simple, or it can be complex, but as Ash Ecology and Environmental we have dealt with numerous cases from small scale one-off houses to large scale housing projects and will be able to provide guidance depending what ecological assessment is required.
