Our experienced and licenced consultants provide expert ecological advice throughout all sectors to clients across the UK.

We provide a full range of ecological surveys and assessments which are undertaken to a high standard in accordance with current guidance.

This delivers cost effective solutions whilst also securing planning permissions with minimal conditions.

Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

We provide clear and concise Phase I documentation which includes a full assessment of biological data from the Local Records Centre and discussions with the County Ecologist to determine the scope of any further survey work required prior to planning determination. Recommendations made are proportionate to the level of impact and to the nature and scale of the proposed works.
