With Spring around the corner, we are working closely with clients to ensure they are ready to hit the ground running when the main ecology survey windows open.

The majority of ecology surveys need to take place between spring and autumn, and some species have very specific times during this period when they need to be surveyed.

In our experience, it is a really heart-sinking moment to hear that ecological restraints have forced project plans to change, particularly as there can often be significant delays to project programmes as a result. We are on your side, working with you to ensure that ecology does not pose any risks to your progress.

What you need to know

Ecological compliance is essential for projects to progress as planned, and the timescales and protocol are often very stringent.

Our Environment and Planning team have the experience and expertise to not only advise on ecological risks and requirements, but to ensure that surveys and assessments are booked in and carried out in accordance with the best practice guidelines and legislations / Policies.

Why you need DM

Our Environment and Planning team offer a unique offering in a completely integrated Environment and Planning including ecology. Together we provide fully comprehensive, end to end consultancy and unrivalled streamlining of land and access solutions for your project.
