SURVEYS & REPORTS

Habitat management

Habitat management solutions in Farnham, Surrey, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire

At Darwin Ecology Ltd, we have a team of experienced habitat managers who offer habitat management plans across Farnham, Surrey, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. All our habitat management plans are created after conducting a thorough survey of your site and after reports are examined. 

Ecological appraisals

If you do not require a full Phase 1 Habitat Survey we can undertake quick "walkover surveys" that will give you an overview of the likely protected species potential. This type of survey is often carried out pre-purchase to check whether your plans for the site are likely to incur significant protected species mitigation costs. This type of survey is also acceptable to some LPAs in place of a full Phase 1 Habitat Survey where there is little or no ecological interest on the site.
BREEAM and Code

BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes

Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) and Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) ecological assessment surveys are undertaken by our qualified, IEEM registered ecologists.

Code is now compulsory for all new build buildings. Maximising your ecological credits can often be a cost effective way of gaining credits and will improve the environment around your development making it more saleable.

We will review your site pre and post-development and assess its potential to meet ecological criteria set out in the BREEAM or Code guidelines for homes, offices, industrial, retail, healthcare and educational facilities. Recommendations will be made to help you to achieve the maximum potential for your project.
Habitat management planning

Habitat management planning

Where new habitats are to be created as part of the planning application process, local planning authorities will often require the submission of a habitat management plan to ensure the long-term maintenance of the site.

Experienced habitat managers at Darwin Ecology Ltd can design and produce habitat management plans for a range of uses including Farm Environment Plans and UK Woodland Assurance Scheme applications. Plans are tailored to fit your land use and are designed to optimise wildlife conservation potential in tandem with recreational or commercial objectives. If you need our help with a phase 1 habitat survey, get in touch with our team and we will provide you with all the information and help you need.
