Ecology Services

EP Ecology are specialist providers of a wide range of ecological consultancy services, from plant and habitat surveys, through protected species surveys, impact assessment, mitigation, and licensing.

Plant and Habitat Surveys

From broad-brush overviews of species and habitat assemblages within a site to detailed assessments of botanical communities and habitat mosaics and peat mapping, EP Ecology can assist with your plant and habitat survey needs.

Protected & Notable Species Survey Services

The traditional Ecology surveys, from bats to badgers, adders to newts, and meadow pipits to merlin, EP Ecology has a skilled team of ecology surveyors who can deliver a full suite of protected species surveys to suit any proposed developments.

Ecological Assessment Services

From scoping surveys, to baseline data collection all the way through to assessment for impacts or likely significant effects, our friendly team at EP Ecology can help your project excel for biodiversity.

Incorporating Biodiversity in Design

We at EP Ecology are passionate about ensuring that we deliver the best possible outcomes for both clients, and for biodiversity in the projects we deliver.
