The unique geology and landscape present in the UK has created a range of specialist habitats and species. The current national planning policy framework (NPPF) places emphasis on the need to consider protected species in any new development. Many local authorities require evidence that surveys for protected species have been undertaken prior to the consent of planning applications. This is where SAP Ecology and Environmental can help. Our dedicated and highly trained team of ecologists are experts in assessing habitats for their potential to support protected species. If potential is identified, species specific surveys will be recommended to ensure your project remains compliant with UK and European legislation and the NPPF.
