Ecology has been an integral part of our multi-disciplinary consultancy for over 25 years through early involvement in large scale, environmentally sensitive projects.
The practice offers a complete ecological service covering a range of disciplines, which have been utilised by numerous nationally known client bodies. Negotiation with statutory and non-statutory nature conservation organisations is an area of particular expertise.
Within the team of 25 ecologists, we have specialist botanists, zoologists and ornithologists. We advise on all protected species with particular expertise in bats, great crested newts, badgers, otters, reptiles, water voles and white-clawed crayfish. We are experienced in obtaining Natural England licences when, for example, the translocation of protected species is a necessity. We also have an experienced Japanese Knotweed Team.
