Ecological Consultancy

Whether you see environmental issues as a problem to be solved or you’re actively seeking to enhance or maintain an important habitat, our ecological consultancy can help.

We offer a comprehensive range of Ecological Consultancy services designed to assist clients, including developers, architects and contractors overseeing major projects through to smaller developments such as conversions and extensions.

Conservation runs deep within the DNA of NBC Environment and we’ve worked closely with the likes of the Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA) and Natural England. We also understand the needs of businesses and are able to balance commercial objectives with ecological responsibility in a sensitive and pragmatic manner.

Ecological and land based services are provided through Blackdown Environmental, an NBC company. This strategic partnership places us in an enviable position in this sector. We are able to combine ecological consultancy with environmental management to offer a fully integrated service to businesses throughout the UK. All projects are managed by staff that are members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). Our Ecologists hold protected species licences allowing them to work with many species that are protected by law. Our remit also covers invasive species.

We look after both the practical ecology and legal components of client projects to ensure they comply with all relevant legislation and are fully audited from appraisal through to completion of works. This covers:

  • Preliminary Ecological Appraisals (PEA)
  • Protected Species Surveys
  • Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA)
  • Protected Species Licensing
  • Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW)
  • Wildlife Translocations
  • BREEAM & Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH)

We recognise the value of consultancy lies in the expertise of people. We’re proud that some of the most highly qualified ecological experts and the most skilled operators in their fields have chosen to join our team.
