You’re all set to start planning your development, or maybe submit the planning application, when you’re told you need a tree survey. Who do you need to ask, and what is it you need from them?
We have developed an hour long CPD seminar to offer some insight into the process of engaging, managing and understanding ecology surveys.
The contaminated land assessment process enables the developer to demonstrate that the site is safe and suitable for the proposed use. This is achieved through the planning system, at application stage, and through relevant planning conditions.
If you’re planning works to buildings or underground structures, you are likely to need an ecologist to assess the potential for hibernating bats.
As the mild autumn temperatures that we’ve been enjoying are starting to fade and the colder weather sets in, birds will be migrating to their winter grounds from northern latitudes.
