Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) is a process of identifying, quantifying and evaluating potential ecological impacts of a proposed development.
Ecological Impact Assessment normally begins with a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal but often also includes ‘phase 2’ surveys for protected/notable species and habitats to allow a full assessment of impacts to be made.
We can advise you and help you draw up detailed plans which will avoid negative impacts on the local ecology. We can also recommend mitigating steps that you can take to minimise the impact of your development on the environment and even enhance it where possible.
Our reports are clear and concise and to Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) guidelines.
