Mitigation and habitat work

P1010651 brickworth mitigation pond constructionWhere planned activities are likely to negatively affect wildlife interests, we advise clients on the best course of action to avoid, minimise and mitigate any impacts. This is particularly important where legally-protected species and habitats are concerned. We also have a Habitat Management Team to create, restore and manage habitats.

To avoid unlawful damage to such wildlife interests, we are able to offer a suite of systems for managing developments and other activities to avoid a net loss of biodiversity interest.

"We applied to build a barn to be sited on an arable field.  The council asked for a biodiversity appraisal, and placed a short deadline for receipt. We engaged Dr Chris Gleed-Owen who made a site visit within days, and delivered a fully researched report with plans, species list and recommendation a few days later, within the required timescale.  We have therefore avoided the need for extensions and delays.  Thank you Chris.
