The most basic level of survey, usually a prelude to sustainability credit reports. No seasonal restrictions.
A highly concise report follows our ‘field study’ at your site, and provides photographs and commentary on any valuable plants, habitats and animals recorded at the time of the visit. This demonstrates that you have undertaken a scientifically rigorous ecological appraisal of your site, and used the results to propose mitigation for any net habitat loss, and better, biodiversity enhancements (which can be simple and cheap: bird boxes, native planting and so on).
The key take home points about ecological walkover surveys are that they are very quick to organise, relatively cheap, and that if you provide one up front with your planning application, or in advance of a sustainability assessment (for Code/BREEAM), it will go a long way toward helping achieve your development ambitions while avoiding unplanned costs and delays, as well as outright refusal from your local planning authority.
