The impact of development on protected species needs to be taken seriously. Legislation can be confusing and appear daunting. However we are here to advise clients through the whole process.
Great crested newt surveys can be commissioned as well as wetland assessments and management plans.
Bat assessments can be carried out on both buildings and trees. Dusk and dawn activity surveys can be carried out and site supervision work provided during the construction stages of a development.
Training sessions can be provided for both students and professionals. Recent examples include great crested newt survey, bat sonogram analysis, wetland assessments and report writing.
