EPS Licences

Habitat management solutions

Why do I need a licence?

European Protected Species Licences are required when development works are likely to have a negative impact on a European Protected Species such as bats, dormice or great crested newts. 

The licences are issued by Natural England within the areas we tend to work.

Darwin Ecology Ltd have a 100% success rate in European Protected Species Licence applications - contact us today to discuss your project and how we can help you.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a European Protected Species License varies depending on the scale of your project, the species present and the population of the species on site.

The cost tends to be approximately £600-£1000 for a Protected Species License Application.

What are the timeframes?

The time frames vary depending on your project specifics but Darwin Ecology have a quick turn around for writing and submitting the applications to Natural England.

Natural England then seek to issue a decision within 30 working days after receiving your application. 

What does the license enable me to do?

The license will permit you to legally undertake the development works on your site which could include demolition of buildings, alternations to roof and roof structure, removal of a pond or hedgerow removal.
