Preliminary Ecological Appraisal, Isle of Arran

EP Ecology completed a preliminary ecological appraisal for a site on the Isle of Arran. Our client requested the survey to accompany a planning application to re-instate a quarry.

We undertook a field visit to the island to map phase 1 habitats and assess the suitability of habitats for protected and notable species. This was complemented with records of protected species and designated sites gathered online. Our ecologists delivered a detailed report to inform the client and Local Planning Authority of the ecological sensitivities and requirements identified for project progression.
