Protected Species Surveys
Local planning authorities often require evidence that protected species are not harmed by the proposed activity and that biodiversity enhancement and protection measures are in place prior to granting planning consent. These surveys are therefore frequently an integral part of successful planning applications.
We can carry out surveys for all European and nationally protected species including badgers, bats, breeding birds, great crested newts, hazel dormouse, otters, reptiles, water voles and white clawed crayfish. Some of these are described below in more detailed.
