Local Authorities will not accept an application which is deficient in wildlife information, which can cause lengthy delays. We advise which surveys are needed and have a proportionate approach to any necessary mitigation. Ecological surveys are subject to seasonal constraints; a number of protected species hibernate or become less active, whilst others migrate or are only in flower/visible at certain times of the year. The timing of ecology survey work is sometimes restricted to a small window annually. Therefore it is best practice to plan ecology survey in as early as possible.
