What is a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal?
A Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA) is a rapid assessment of a proposed development site. We check for the presence of protected or notable species and habitats. The results are used to identify possible effects of development proposals on these ecology features.
The reports we prepare are used by Planning Authorities to determine whether a development fits with the local biodiversity strategy. They are also used by designers and architects to make a development more wildlife friendly.
A PEA is often the first ecology report that a planner will ask for as it can be used to form the basis of ecology information for a site.
