CPD Seminars for Development Professionals

development professionals

Understanding the requirements for ecology, arboriculture and contaminated land surveys can significantly increase the likelihood of your development projects meeting their budget and time constraints.

We have established CPD Seminars to help up-skill your team when it comes to navigating environmental surveys for development. The Seminars cover various issues such as risks, timescales and design implications, and they offer practical guidance for your own workload and development.

The Seminar will either outline all three of the following topics or it can be focused on one specific area:

Contaminated Land, Ground Conditions and Ground Investigations

We will explore the background of contaminated land, the assessments required and how the assessment of ground conditions can reduce the risks of costs and time delays.

Ecology and Protected Species Surveys

The Seminar will cover the phased approach required to ecology assessments, beginning with the Preliminary Ecological Appraisal. It will highlight the key areas of ecology that you will need to consider, and the mitigation methods required to enable the development to proceed without risking prosecution.

Tree Surveys and Arboricultural Impact Assessments

We will uncover the key stages within the Arboricultural Impact Assessment (AIA), including the tree survey, the Tree Constraints Plan and the Tree Protection Plan. We will also offer advice on how to identify when an AIA will be required and the process of completing it.

The CPD seminars can be adapted to suit the needs of those receiving the presentation and we talk through any specific issues you have.

Following the CPD, each delegate will receive a CPD certificate confirming their attendance and this can then be used towards the CPD requirements of their chosen professional body.
