We also have extensive experience of Habitats Regulations Assessment, with over 30 completed.
Our aim at Ecology Consulting is to provide the full range of ecological services, from advice on initial development site searches, survey planning and design, ecological risk assessment, full ecological impact assessment, post-submission ecological expert support (including at public inquiry), advice through construction and post-construction monitoring.
