"We would like to thank all our consultants, advisers, employed specialists and contractors who have contributed to the successful granting of planning permission and we can now look forward to the exciting challenge of putting or scheme into the construction phase. "

Jerry Dalton, Grenadier

"I would like to thank you for the time and effort all your crews put in to make the event a success, we had a lot of work to be carried out in a short amount of time and this was carried out fully in the short time frame we were given, please pass on my thanks to the crews carrying out the works."

Paul Robins, Skanska

"The report looks really good, just what we need to show the client we are being proactive in highlighting areas that may need additional measures to be put in place."

Matt Woodward, Groundsure

"Again, feedback on the report has been very good; a far more coherent report than other consultancies."

Joe Doyle, Skanska

"“Unfortunately a magnificent very large copper beech tree in the center of our village had to be felled, due to fungal damage making it unsafe. These are comments received from the local residents to the site, and all other residents that stopped to watch the lads at work. “Amenable, considerate to people having to walk nearby, courteous, nice, helpful.” They also allowed the children from the school opposite the site to visit. Any disruption was kept to an absolute minimum. Our Parish Councillors would have no hesitation in recommending them”. "

Anne, Coombe St Nicholas Council

"The most impressive aspect of the Blackdown Environmental offer is that the team not only understand ecology and the environment - but also add balance through appreciation of the pressures and complexities of the development and construction process. In my opinion, Sophia & Adam consistently deliver excellent value reports and mitigation recommendations that allow us, and our clients, to make excellent progress without costing the earth. I certainly have no hesitation in recommending Blackdown Environmental. "
