Environmental Impact Assessment

Pennine ecological have extensive experience in preparing ecological reports for Environmental Impact Assessment and the preparation of Environmental Statements.

The gaining of planning consent for development is often dependant on the findings of such reports, as the decision to grant permission is reliant on the requirements of protected species and key habitats being met.

Our diverse background of working in nature conservation organisations and in the commercial sector, enables us to thoroughly evaluate the scope of survey and the correct methodology that should be applied to each project.

It is essential that the appropriate level of ecological survey is identified at the outset, and that the survey findings are properly evaluated to allow an accurate statement of impact to be produced.

It is the level of impact on any given species/group or habitat that will determine the level of mitigation required in relation to each project. It is through this combined process that the wildlife interest of the site can often be safely and sustainably integrated within the development, allowing planning permission to be granted.
