The presence of certain wildlife species and habitats can disrupt development of a site.
But it needn’t be the end of the world. The reality is that long delays and frustrations are usually avoidable with a combination of good practice and early planning.

Our ecological services support your planning needs.
Local planning authorities are now under various statutory obligations to take nature conservation into account when determining planning applications.
When responding to a planning application, the authority may grant unconditional planning permission, in practice however this is very rare.
In the majority of cases planning permission is only granted subject to certain conditions or a negotiated agreement with the developer.
We recognise that no two sites, and no two developments are the ever the same. This individualistic approach to projects ensures our Clients a personal, professional and efficient service.
Abricon’s ecologists ensure that regulators receive the correct information the first time around, saving you time and money.
