Our Survey and Assessment Services

Protected species and their habitats have potential to be impacted by a range of development activities. We will collaborate with you throughout the planning process to meet your obligations in respect of ecology, and secure the necessary consents and any protected species licences that may be required.

Biodiversity and habitat surveys

The starting point for many development projects is to carry out a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal for an overview of baseline ecological conditions on-site.

Vegetation Surveys

National Vegetation Classification (NVC), Hedgerow and River Corridor surveys. We map habitats accurately using GIS (Geographic Information System).
