ECOSA is open for business - Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

19 March 2020

At ECOSA, we are committed to delivering excellence in ecological services and keeping your project moving forwards during this difficult time.

In light of the ongoing pandemic, we have taken steps to ensure that our business continues whilst protecting the health of our clients, staff, their families and communities.


Business as usual

Further to advice issued by the Government on Monday 16th March, we have now transitioned to remote working.

A full risk assessment is undertaken prior to visiting site and site surveys are still being undertaken with appropriate health and safety measures in place to protect you and our staff. Any limitations will be discussed directly with you.

We will continue to monitor our practices, considering the latest Government and Public Health England guidance, and communicate these with our staff and clients accordingly.


Survey season is underway!

In the first instance, we can undertake an initial Preliminary Ecological Appraisal to establish ecological conditions on site and assess the need for further specific species survey works.

This survey can be undertaken at any time of year. Should further survey works be required, we will advise you accordingly.

However, be aware that if further surveys are required, protected species surveys may be restricted to certain times of year so don’t miss out!

The spring is the key time to get a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal undertaken with the survey seasons for bats, reptiles and great crested newt surveys (amongst others) fast approaching. You can refer to our survey timetable to see when surveys can be undertaken.


Supporting your project

If you have any queries regarding our ecological survey, assessment or contracting services and would like a quote, you can call us on 02380 261065, email, or request a quote via the fee proposal request form on our website and we will get in touch.

If you are currently working with us on a project, all our project managers are still contactable on their usual email addresses.
