Phase 1 habitat survey


agb Environmental has a significant track record of offering ecology and arboriculture services to ensure your project has minimal impact on the surrounding habitats. agb Environmental can cater for preliminary ecological diligence and phase 1 habitat surveys, in-line with correct legal proceedings.

The phase 1 habitat survey is a standardised system to record semi-natural vegetation and other wildlife habitats. Covering ten categories, the phase 1 habitat survey includes woodland scrub, heathland, open water and coastland. Since its creation, the phase 1 habitat survey has been used countrywide to promote the conservation of habitats and species.

Our extensive experience in ecology and arboriculture means that we are able to achieve the phase 1 habitat survey with quick and effective outcomes. agb Environmental will employ a phase 1 habitat survey to evaluate the ecological features at the site, which are designed to identify potentially important areas of habitat, or the presence of protected species which may then require further protected species surveys. An extended phase 1 habitat survey would be a standard ecological survey in order to pass a successful planning application with LPAs (with a protected species surveys required to secure planning if identified as required). The information found in the phase 1 habitat survey can help local planning authorities determine any planning restraints or Legal problems.

Contact agb Environmental to find out more about how your project may need a phase 1 habitat survey.
