We undertake a comprehensive range of ecological surveys on a wide variety of greenfield and brownfield sites, providing our clients with expert advice on wildlife for all manner of projects from small-scale developments right through to multi-million pound railway and road schemes. 

Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA)

A Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (also known as a Phase 1 Habitat Survey) is the initial, baseline survey which provides a broad insight into the main habitats, features and plant species on any given site, as well as the potential for harbouring protected species. The first phase of an ecological assessment involves a desk-based study in which existing species data records are sourced, along with information regarding designations of conservation concern such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Local Wildlife Sites (LWS). This information is combined with the findings of a site-based study, after which we are able to advise on any ecological constraints and the need for additional species surveys. All of the findings and recommendations will then be detailed in a full ecological report and, if no further surveys are required, this can be submitted straight away as part of a planning application.
