The Purpose of Ecological Surveys

Ecology surveys are suitable when a development is proposed that has the potential to impact the local biodiversity in some way. An ecological survey can assess an area for valuable plants, habitats and animals so that the local planning authority has enough information to make a proper decision on whether the development would have an adverse effect on wildlife in the area.

During the survey, a trained ecologist will look around the site and make note of habitats and species found in the area at the time of the survey. Following the site visit, the ecologist will write a report detailing the findings of the survey.

An ecology survey can identify any ecological issues or constraints and help ensure that development proposals are not delayed. The survey will also enable appropriate mitigation and compensation to be put in place, to minimise any impact on habitats.

Our most common ecological survey is a preliminary ecological appraisal or phase 1 habitat survey.

We offer them at prices starting from just £599 so get in touch today for a free quote. A phase 1 habitat survey is the baseline survey. To expand on that, it is a standardised method of appraising your site for the presence of plants and animals of all types. 

We also offer simple, fast and relatively cheap ecological surveys called ecological walkover surveys. This type of survey provides you with important information about plants, animals and habitats on your site.
