Ecological Services offers help and advice for local planning authorities, businesses and organisations, consultants, the public and research students.

We offer advice about protected species, habitats, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs), and local wildlife sites and their designation. The ecology group also carries out and advises on ecological surveys.

These are the type of projects we are working on or have recently carried out:

  • Phase 1 and Phase 2 habitat surveys

  • botanical surveys

  • bat surveys of schools, colleges and other buildings

  • bird surveys

  • reptile surveys

  • Great Crested Newt and amphibian surveys

  • surveys of school wildlife areas

  • ecological management plans

We have also been involved in flood alleviation and flood storage schemes, the HS2 rail link, road building schemes, cycleways, mineral sites, working with schools on new builds, and other strategic housing sites.
