Species Mitigation

The Habitat Co-op can undertake the work required for your development to comply with wildlife law and to ensure that planning conditions are met. As our team is made up of ecologists that are familiar with the requirements of the Wildlife and Countryside Act and  the Habitats Directive, we can ensure that your development is compliant with legislation. This also ensures that, in many cases, costs are saved from the requirement of having to pay additionally for an ecologist to support a ground clearance team during the initial site preparation work of a development.
