Our team has all the necessary skills, experience and licences to complete a range of ecological survey to satisfy planning requirements and conditions. A selection of the species we are able to survey in-house is provided below:
- Bats (both Preliminary Roost Assessment and a wide range of further Phase 2 surveys, including hibernation assessments and bespoke/non-standard surveys as required)
- Birds (including specialist assessments such as for wintering and wetland birds, species-specific and nocturnal thermal imaging surveys)
- Great Crested Newt
- Water vole
We are also able to draw on our wider site teams at Nicholsons where required, for example aerial assessment of trees using Mobile Elevated Working Platforms, as well as working closely with other disciplines such as our arboricultural and forestry teams.
