What We Do
Our experienced team guide you through the complete process required from initial assessment, completing any necessary pre-planning surveys, through construction, licensing and mitigation, along with post completion monitoring. We deliver a complete peace of mind package to our clients. We use our experience and initiative to design a suit of site specific surveys that ensure our clients progression.
Our common-sense approach to mitigation aims to avoid, cancel, reduce or offset any impacts from a proposed development, as well as to maintain the species in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We will support any license application required to the statutory body and provide further monitoring if you or any mitigation licence requires this for a site.
All our surveys are carried out by a fully insured, experienced, Natural England licensed surveyors and comply with the latest guidelines and legislation.
Where possible, we look to assess, alter and mitigate to avoid impacts from any development and the subsequent need for a licence.
If badgers and/or badger setts are found to be present and it is not possible to avoid disturbance, then a licence will be required from Natural England with a mitigation strategy implemented. We can complete any licence and method statement application for you.
