Environmental advice for planners

DAERA has a role in development management and responds to development proposals where there is potential for impacts on the natural and marine environments and fisheries interests.  

As a statutory consultee, we provide advice to planning authorities on the following topics:

  • biodiversity
  • water
  • pollution prevention and control
  • contaminated Land
  • marine
  • inland Fisheries
  • land and landscapes

The Planning Response Team is the single point of contact for planning consultations and environmental queries related to planning, and provides a single, integrated response for each consultation across DAERA’s areas of responsibility shown above.

The Planning Response Team can be contacted at:

Telephone: 028 9056 9604

Please note, the Planning Response Team does not coordinate responses from DAERA's Veterinary Service, Countryside Management Branch or Forestry Service.
