Protected Species Surveys

The Ecology Consultancy can conduct protected species surveys for your projects to ensure they comply with current legislation

Protected species surveys are a legal requirement if initial surveys suggest that any of the species listed in Article 12 of the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations (Habitats Regulations) 2010 (as amended), or the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended), are present on a development site.

Natural England standing advice is that protected species surveys are a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.

We have considerable experience on small and large projects for clients throughout the UK and our ecologists hold survey licences for a wide range of protected species. Many of our ecologists have experience of preparing and advising clients on European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) licences to handle and move protected species.

The range of plants and animals (including invertebrates) that are protected by law are listed on the Natural England website.

To find out what surveys are required for protected species see relevant pages (menu on the right) for details.
