Certain large-scale development projects considered to have a significant impact on the environment require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). We can provide input into the Ecology section of an EIA through undertaking Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIA) and ecological scooping exercises.
This is a good time to carry out nut searches for signs of dormice. Late September is also the end of the reptile season and bat survey seasons. We start compiling the majority of European Protected Species licence (EPSL) applications from this time onwards.
Please refer to our survey timetable for further information on surveys that can be undertaken this season.
