The ecological impact of any development from local scale residential schemes to national infrastructure projects should be considered at the planning stage.
Barn Hill Ecology can carry out preliminary ecological assessments in accordance to industry standard guidelines in order to identify potential ecological constraints and enhancement opportunities at a site.
Preliminary Ecological Assessments combine a desk study and field survey of a development site and can assist with your land purchase or proposal by:
- Identifying the presence or likely absence of protected species or habitats;
- Providing guidance on wildlife legislation obligations and Local Planning Authority (LPA) requirements;
- Making appropriate ecological recommendations to progress the development - e.g. further protected species surveys; and by
- Outlining how the biodiversity features of the site can be maintained and enhanced.
