The aim of Landscape Mitigation is to reduce the negative impact of any particular development project.

Initial good planning and design are vital to reduce the impact of any project and ensure protection and sustainability of the surrounding natural habitat. This helps to ensure that, wherever possible, existing wildlife is incorporated into the scheme and are protected.

There is a direct relationship between ecological impact and the development of landscapes, as the two are connected. Woodland, riparian paths, trees, grassland and wildlife are all key components of any landscape and need to be evaluated and monitored by conducting ecological appraisals. This is of vital when establishing the objectives of a new project.

Ecological Surveys

Phase 1 Habitat Surveys are usually a pre-requisite to a planning application. The survey gives a baseline indication of what is present on the site, which can increase or decrease the likelihood of a further Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey being required.

Our in-house Ecologist is able to satisfy the requirements of these ecological surveys to ensure legislation is complied with, in a timely and cost effective manner.
