Daniel Ahern Ecology

Ecological Consultancy


Ecological support for your planning application

We provide ecology surveys and reports for projects large and small, from individual householder extensions, re-roofs and new-builds, to farm diversification projects including solar installations, barn conversions and brown/green-field site development.

We are here to help you stay the right side of ecology law with your project and to protect British native wildlife. We focus on protected species, including bats, nesting birds, reptiles, amphibians (including newts), dormouse, badger and on enhancing bio-diversity.

We carry out botanical surveys (gardens, woodland, hedgerows, fields), tree surveys and freshwater surveys (rivers, lakes, reservoirs and ponds) as required.

Our licenced and highly experienced team can support your development from initial planning application through consultation and implementation.
