Planning decisions are based on the accuracy and content of documentation submitted with planning applications; providing robust documents to our clients is a core part of our work.
We carry out the full range of ecology surveys and assessments using nationally-accepted methodologies,
- Phase 1 habitat survey
- UK habitat classification
- Preliminary ecological appraisals
- Hedgerow surveys
- Biodiversity net gain and offsetting
- Non -native invasive plant species surveys
Where more detailed botanical recording is required, a survey to National Vegetation Classification (NVC) standards can be undertaken.
For larger schemes, that are likely to have a significant impact upon ecological features, we can carry out an Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA).
All surveys and assessments are accompanied with an appropriate document. We are able to produce a range of documents, from short advisory letters to method statements, as well as detailed reports.
