Why consider Ecological Surveys?

Firstly, we are an old fashioned company, we believe in providing a high level of service to all of our clients, not just the big ones, which incidentally includes County and District Councils as well as many national house builders including Kier, Interserve, Linden Homes, Gleeds and many others.


Secondly, we are approachable and more than happy to discuss your requirements, or concerns by telephone rather than just via email. 


Thirdly, we offer a comprehensive range of services and can deal inhouse with the overwhelming majority of ecological (and tree survey) requirements.


Fourthly, we have staff qualified to Master of Science Degree level, senior staff are full members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and we hold Professional Indemnity Insurance cover to £2 million and Public Liability Insurance to £5 million. We strongly recommend that you check whether any Consultant you engage offers the same level of security.


Finally, we have staff based on the Island and Southampton so can cover all of the Island, no matter what your requirements.


During 2019, we undertook projects on the Island for a number of large developers, the National Trust and private individuals as well as works on behalf of the Council too. Projects included demolition and redevelopment of large hotels, several large new residential developments and a large number of householder applications for new roofs and or small extensions.

Phase 1 Habitat 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.

If emailing kindly provide details of the exact location, the proposal and provide copies of any correspondance from the LPA.

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 normally trigger a requirement for a bat survey. Initially, this is usually for 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.
