Ecological Phase 1 Surveys

Phase 1 or extended Phase 1 surveys are generally required for all proposed development sites, whether larger sites on agricultural / brown field site or small back gardens. We can advise on the appropriate level of surveys. Please call or email for an informal discussion.



Bat Surveys

There are a whole host of reasons that a local authority might request a bat survey

Invariably, barn conversions and alterations to an existing roof structure no matter how minor, will sometimes trigger a requirement for a bat survey. Initially, this is a 'scoping survey' to consider whether more complete surveys are actually required. Often this initial survey is all that is required. Other times this is simply a precursor to Emergence Surveys. Please call to discuss your personal requirements.



Tree Surveys for Development - BS5837 - 2012
