Ecology Services

Habitat & Species Surveys & Licensing

Ecological surveys are now regularly requested by planning authorities as a standard part of the planning application process. Our in-house team of experienced ecologists are capable of evaluating the extent of survey required so as to reduce costs and limit potential time delays for all parties concerned.

Our team has all the necessary skills, experience and licences to complete any ecological survey to satisfy planning requirements and conditions.

Habitat Creation, Restoration & Management

Habitat creation and enhancement is now a regular requirement for an approved planning permission. It can improve designated sites and can contribute to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives.

We are able to provide a full suite of services ranging from the sourcing and installation of wildlife boxes, to the creation of new woodland, meadow, wetland and other habitats.

As our ecologists have a strong land management background they always ensure that new habitats are cost effective to create and maintain in the long term.

Stakeholder Engagement

With our wider professional experience of land management, Lockhart Garratt enjoys excellent professional relationships with the key environmental stakeholders at both a local and national level.

On your behalf, we are able to use these trusted relationships to deliver positive and proactive engagement that can help to resolve potential issues before they have a negative impact on projects. We can use this extensive experience in facilitating and managing engagement strategies of projects from small local developments to nationally important urban extensions and new settlements.

Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA)

Lockhart Garratt are able to conduct a full EcIA which can stand alone as an ecological report or form part of a full Environmental Impact Assessment.

We develop these reports using thorough desk research, engaged consultation with stakeholders and site surveys as required to mitigate against operational, post-construction, and cumulative impacts from a development.
