About Our Protected Species Surveys

We provide the protected species surveys that are frequently required by your local planning authority, to ensure that populations of legally protected species such as bats, newts, and reptiles are not affected in the course of your development. You can see a list of species that are legally protected on the gov.uk website.

Needing a protected species survey on your project can be time consuming and costly. That’s why it’s important to work with a team who can complete the work quickly and efficiently and know everything there is to know about protected species.

Our Consultants

Arbtech’s ecological consultants are very experienced. All are degree or masters degree qualified and all hold licences for one or more European protected species. In fact, our clients have enjoyed a 98% success rate at planning, on the basis of our advice.

Our ecologists are home and office-based throughout the UK, giving us wider coverage than most other consultancies, with less travel to your site. We pass on this time and cost saving to you by means of lower fees for your survey. Our head office is in Chester, Cheshire but we carry out hundreds of surveys each year all over the UK. We are able to do this due to our unique approach and sheer scale.

How to Start Your Protected Species Survey

If you need a protected species survey it is very easy to instruct us to get started. Just give us a call or send us an email and tell us about your project. We’ll ask you for some details including the address of your development so that we can create an accurate quote for you. Then we’ll send the quote over which will explain everything.

We will also give you a booking form which you can send to us to let us know you would like us to carry out the survey. Once that’s done, we’ll arrange a date to get started and our consultants will get to work. This year, more people will choose Arbtech to support their planning application than any other consultancy, so get your free quote today.
