Protected Species

Protected species are a material consideration in the determination of planning applications. This means that for most greenfield or development projects you will need a survey report. In addition wildlife law, local planning policy, the NERC Act and recent case law; means your planning proposal must be supported by robust ecological data to demonstrate the impact of your proposal.

Ecoscope Ltd. can provide a report that will:

  • Validate any project showing the proposal has been properly considered and thought through.
  • Prevent delays caused by requests for further information from Local Planning Authorities or Statutory Agencies.
  • Provide the information needed to design and implement effective mitigation and enhancement strategies when required.

Ecoscope Ltd. has considerable experience on small and large projects for clients throughout Wales and England, our ecologists are licensed for a wide range of protected species. From bats to newts we have it covered.
