These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011. Those Regulations require that projects which are above a certain size, or meet prescribed criteria, must be screened to determine whether they are likely to have significant environmental effects and, consequently, are subject to the requirement for an environmental impact assessment. These Regulations raise and amend the thresholds at which certain types of development project will need to be screened in order to determine whether an environmental impact assessment is required under EU Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment.
Implements: Directive 2011/92/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment. (2011-12-13)
Amends: Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011 (S.I. No. 1824 of 2011). (2011-07-19)

The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
