Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

The first stage in any site assessment

Nothing is more vital at the start of a project than having the clearest understanding of the value and sensitivities of your site from a landscape perspective, to ensure any material considerations can be made at the very earliest stage.

Ensuring the very best data is collected from a wide variety of sources to identify ecological constraints and inform development viability and layouts therefore is hugely important.

The team at SWTC will provide a thorough initial assessment of your site with qualified ecologists, then surveying it to classify habitats and evaluate the site for protected and notable species. We’ll make timely recommendations and confirm the need for further surveys and/or mitigation, compensation and enhancement to satisfy statutory requirements and achieve necessary consents — as well as identifying any opportunities to deliver ecological enhancement.
