Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

We provide an efficient assessment of the ecological features present, or potentially present, on a site, to inform timelines for a proposed project. Our work identifies the potential ecological constraints of the proposed development, the need for further survey and/or likely mitigation and enhancement measures.

Biodiversity Net Gain

We collect baseline information to ensure Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) assessments offer the best possible opportunity to achieve meaningful enhancement.
