Preliminary Site Appraisals

Preliminary Site Appraisals

For developers seeking to acquire a site, or just starting to think about their proposals and unsure about the level of ecological survey which may be required, preliminary site appraisals may be a good starting point. Best used for larger development sites, these surveys will gather outline ecological information and advice on the likely level and depth of fieldwork which would be required to support a planning application for the whole area.

 

The fieldwork would follow similar methodologies to an Extended Phase 1 survey , including habitat assessments, evidence or potential for protected species using the site and a visual assessment of any trees or buildings on the site. The report produced will include a site map showing the habitats present and a preliminary species list with recommendations for both survey needs and possible mitigation actions.
