Ecology integrated into planning process on complex residential development

Early involvement from Baker Consultants in assessing and designing the ecology aspects into the project contributed to the success of this particularly complex scheme in receiving planning permission with very few conditions for its size.

Survey innovation delivered by experts, backed by robust science
Appropriate, good quality surveys are critical for any project requiring ecology input. Licensed for all protected species surveys, we collect and analyse survey data in a technically and commercially robust way to withstand the highest level of scrutiny.
Always mindful of best practice guidance, we assess and provide the level of ecological survey necessary for each project to satisfy consultees and reduce client risks. Involving clients, design teams, conservation bodies and other consultees ensures the best possible outcome for our clients.
We work across a wide range of sectors, including housing, infrastructure, road and rail, leisure, waste, commercial development, renewable energy, land management, access and recreation, and regeneration.
At our core is a belief in both nature conservation and positive development, well delivered. With our input, projects can provide benefits for nature, for people and for business.
