Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP)
The purpose of a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) is to outline how a construction project will avoid, minimise or mitigate effects on the environment and surrounding area.
- Ensures your project protects the environment
- Avoids, minimises or mitigates effects on the surrounding area
- Guidance on a wide range of services
- An individual approach that suits your project
- Review your plan at regular intervals
- Can be updated through the project’s life cycle
The plan often details the implementation of measures in accordance with environmental commitments outlined in an environmental statement or policy, and can be updated at regular intervals throughout the project’s life cycle. A CEMP is often requested as part of a planning application, and may need to be altered following a decision that is subject to particular conditions or derivatives.
