Ecology Consultancy

For your development to be sustainable, the potential impact your proposal may have upon habitats needs to be appropriately assessed and given careful consideration by an ecology consultancy.

The effects can vary depending on the surrounding habitat, so these ecological services need to be tailored to each project. The balance between impact and development is never easy, but we provide a full range of ecological services to suit your project.

By developing sites in urban and remote rural locations we have experienced a wide range of challenges in ecological surveying to gain planning consent. We fully understand that when developing a project ecology can be a sensitive issue, so our consultants will work closely with you, or your organisation, to appropriately address any concerns which may arise from the various parties involved.

Our Ecological Consultancy operates UK-wide and offer a broad range of surveys and reporting which include:

  • Extended Phase 1 Habitat Surveys
  • Phase 2 Habitat Ecological Surveys
  • Hedgerow Surveys
  • Bat Surveys
  • Bird Surveys
  • Protected Mammal and Reptile Surveys
  • National Vegetation Classification Surveys
  • Ecological Clerk of Works (ecow).

As we are working with nature and the outdoor elements, the ability to conduct ecological surveys is subject to the season. The surveying season calendar therefore acts as a guide to indicate the most suitable months for ecology surveys including bat survey, bird survey, NVC survey and habitat regulations assessment.
