Our clients can also be assured that CES Ecology has full Public Liability, Products Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance cover and operate under a comprehensive Health and Safety Policy.
WHAT WE DO?
We are consultant ecologists and so provide ecological services usually in connection with planning applications. The planning process often triggers a request for the applicant to have an ecological survey.
CES conduct ecological surveys and provide reports which can then be submitted to the planning department. If protected species are found during such a survey CES has the expertise to formulate a mitigation strategy and if necessary write a development licence application. In some cases this can mean moving animals to a different area so that the development can proceed. In other cases this may be timing development activities so that animals are protected and developers adhere to wildlife legislation.
Unlike many of our competitors CES has an experienced field team to carry out services in connection with protected species mitigation. Field team services include monitoring and maintenance of wildlife exclusion fencing and habitat creation and management.
