Ecological Surveying & Environmental Management
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.
These surveys can be carried out throughout the year. Extended Phase 1 Habitat Surveys are a valuable source of information for developers as early identification of ecological issues can prevent any unnecessary delay to planning applications.
Protected Species Surveys
Early identification of any protected species using a site or its immediate surroundings will give you the best chance of working towards mimising the costs associated with planning applications and delivering a successful development.
Habitat Creation & Management
We can advise on habitat creation, enhancement, and management. Our management plans set out clear objectives as well as provide detailed specifications and a timetable of works, accompanied by high quality drawings.
