Baker Consultants has been involved with over a hundred onshore wind energy projects across the UK. These projects range from single turbine developments to large-scale, multi-turbine wind farms.
For most projects, Baker Consultants is brought in at the early stages to collect the wide range of ecological data required to inform the planning application. As with all our surveys, we do not slavishly follow the survey guidelines, but design a level of survey that is appropriate for each project. We have considerable experience and success in negotiating with statutory consultees such as Natural England to agree appropriate and realistic survey scope. Having collected the survey data we are able to present the findings, write the appropriate chapters of the environmental statement and, where necessary, represent the client at public inquiry.
