Our Ecology Services


Our Ecology Team can run independently as well as collaborating within our planning services package.

With over 20 years of experience, we can tailor our ecology services to suit any project whether it is for a barn conversion or a large major residential development or any other kind of development, we can do it.

We can provide ecology services to many different projects of varying sizes from small scale developments to major large-scale housing schemes and larger national infrastructure projects across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and the rest of the UK.

Unlike many ecologists, our Principal Ecologist (CEcol MCIEEM) is a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) being 1 of under 200 Chartered Ecologists in the uk. The award of Chartered Ecologist is a higher standard than that of Full membership of CIEEM and so the expectations of competence are higher. Before joining the Register, applicant Chartered Ecologists will be rigorously assessed to ensure that they are fully competent and confident practitioners. Registrants will be periodically re-assessed to ensure that they have maintained the high level of competence required. So, you can be confident that we operate to the highest professional standards providing excellent customer focus.

Other ecologists require expert input and guidance, whereas our principal ecologist and team have such a high level of expertise and standards that they can undertake any type of ecology survey to the highest level of competence without needing to hire in support for projects. It also means that they can easily rule out unnecessary surveys, whereas less experienced ecologists may request multiple surveys for all types of things that are not necessarily required.   This often means that not only are the best experts dealing with the project, but the project is very cost effective and undertaken for competitive rates.

Our services include expert advice, assessments and protected species surveys for bats, great crested newts, breeding and wintering birds, reptiles, dormice, water voles, otters and badgers.

We can provide advice about National and European Protected Species, Habitats, Wildlife Sites, surveys and lots more. Holding licences for bats, great crested newts, dormice, water voles and Schedule 1 birds. In addition to that also holding a bird ringing licence through the British Trust for Ornithology.

In addition to Ecology assessments we also produce all related surveys including Plant and Trees.

Ecology surveys and mitigation are required for development projects that could affect protected species to obtain planning permission. Surveys need to show whether a site and its surrounding habitats are likely to support protected species and in what capacity. Mitigation is designed to avoid, reduce or manage any negative impacts to protected species.
