Political – environment factors
i.e. NWR is funded by the government and are a public body and therefor have to be accountable for all they do and spend. Not only does this have an impact on what types of projects can be delivered, it may have a good/bad impact on funding.
Doing the leg work first with a project you can try to eliminate these issues, have stakeholder workshops, look and review previous lessons learnt on a similar type of projects.
I.e. for example Brexit, what’s happening, what impact is this going to have in the UK? How is going to effect the funding we receive for projects?
Newts – endangered species on the railway they tend to come across engaged newts, if this happens the project will have to stop, call the relevant departments to come in, make the site safe and limiting the danger to the newts.
Wind farms/solar panels as
Good impact – People want change take HS2(high speed), some people believe that the change will help with commuting, quicker service, more direct routes.
Bad Impact –people are up in arms over HS2 – due to the environmental factors, the removal of green space, running through villages and towns and through people’s homes and back gardens, therefore we have communities who are against this project.
