Advance planning of ecology issues is critical to prevent delays both in achieving planning consent and to the overall build programme.
Legislation protects many species, for example bats, badgers, breeding birds, water voles, great crested newts and otters.
If the correct ecological surveys are not undertaken at the correct time, a developer may be exposed to legal action and inordinate delays as well as potentially abortive work.
Our ecologists are trained to carry out all aspects of ecological surveying and environmental management. Our team has an in-depth understanding of the UK planning system which means that we can deliver practical ecological solutions for development and work efficiently to minimise any potential delays to your project.
