Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

A preliminary ecological appraisal is a key survey tool to help developers of all sizes satisfy planning requirements.

This survey is conducted by searching for the potential for any protected species to be present at a proposed development site and if found, would detail any further surveys required to comply with wildlife law.

Preliminary ecological appraisal can be undertaken at any time of the year, but are best conducted outside the winter months so that a better account of plant communities across a site can be made. Walkover surveys cost just £280 (excl. VAT) + project expenses, which makes this resource a very affordable means of scoping sites to establish the likely cost of ecology work or prior to paying for the purchase of land and property.
