How ecology surveys work...

If you’re intending to develop a property or piece of land, whether that’s removing a superfluous outhouse or changing the function of the site, you will most likely need a Wharton ecology survey and report conducted by a qualified ecologist.

Ecology surveys are required when a building or area that’s set to be transformed has species of wildlife that call it their home. Demolition and construction can’t commence until the site has been surveyed by a professional ecologist, as their specialist knowledge is critical and shapes how the project can move forward safely, legally and responsibly.

Why do I need an ecology survey?

A preliminary ecological survey is best done during the feasibility stage of your planning application, as it will mean that you do not then encounter any unexpected surprises or delays to your planning application from further protected species activity surveys.

Any homeowner or commercial contractor planning on making changes to a property and its land need to work around environmental sustainability, as there are many types of protected species, These include birds, bats, badgers and newts, which must not be disturbed without consultation with a qualified ecologist who has a Natural England licence
