We only work on projects relating to planning permission and over our time in business we have seen just about every issue and found a solution for just about every problem we have come across.

The Purpose of Ecological Surveys

Our range of ecology surveys are suitable when a development is proposed that has the potential to impact the local biodiversity in some way. An ecology 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 and we offer them at prices starting from just £599 so get in touch today for a free quote.
