We advise on low-cost ecological enhancements to improve the biodiversity of each development, as encouraged under the National Planning Policy Framework. We look to enhance the quality and value of developments by offering cost-effective ways to use and improve existing features on site, rather than to simply mitigate.
Our ecology team offer a range of ecological surveys and assessments, including:
- Preliminary Ecological Appraisals
- Bat emergence/re-entry surveys
- Bat building and tree inspections
- Badger activity surveys
- Great Crested Newt surveys and Habitat Suitability Index assessments
- Breeding bird checks
- Reptile surveys
We provide advice and support to help with planning applications and advise on any implications in terms of legislation and UK planning policy.
