Press release from the EU Council dated 14 April 2014: The Council has adopted a directive amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EC. This follows agreement reached by the EU Parliament on 12 March 2014. The new amending EIA Directive will be published in May 2014 and must be transposed by EU Member States within three years.
It represents a significant watering down of earlier drafts of the proposed directive. Philip Lee will be issuing a briefing note on this in the near future.
