Environmental impact study
In case of major landmark sculptures an environmental impact study may be required. An environmental impact study (EIS) is the detailed study of the potential effects of a designated development on the local environment.
Environmental impact studies should assess the existing site and conditions and evaluate the anticipated impacts on the flora, fauna, economy, historical and social factors of the new development. An EIS is important to avoid damage to a local area in terms of its ecology, air and water quality and to ensure long-term sustainable, minimal impact development.
