Ecological Assessment

Compiling an assessment of a proposed development’s ecological impact in the right way and at the right time can often make the difference between planning permission being granted or it being delayed or refused.

Our knowledge of biodiversity, habitats and landscapes means we can grasp a project’s potential implications, suggest any necessary mitigation measures and present the most compelling case to the authorities.

From barn conversions to new-builds, we’ll navigate you through the planning process smoothly and speedily, avoiding costly delays and legislation breaches.
