About Us

Passionate about ecology, our ethos is to to deliver the very best outcomes for both our clients and for biodiversity.

Fresh-faced, but an old hand

EP Ecology is an ecological consultancy operating out of Blantyre, South Lanarkshire. From here we are well placed to deliver for clients throughout Scotland.

Founded in 2020 by Erik Paterson MCIEEM, we have helped dozens of clients through the planning and licensing process with our bespoke ecology survey and support packages.

Using an evidence-based approach, we deliver high quality ecology survey services, data, and advice to clients in the private and public sectors as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Committed to upholding the highest standards in ecological consultancy

We were granted this status in recognition of our commitment to furthering ecological consultancy as a discipline. Our team is dedicated to upholding and advancing the standards in our field.

A sustainable approach

At EP Ecology, we don’t believe in the “bare minimum”. Our ethos is to deliver the very best for both our clients and for biodiversity.

We don’t think that an ecologist’s role in development should be simply to minimise the harm. We believe that our role is to promote biodiversity enhancements in every project. This approach is highly beneficial for our clients as sustainability is one of the main premises of the Planning Policy Framework within Scotland.
