Betts is a national environmental consultancy with its head office in Worcestershire, covering the Midlands, Wales and the south of England, with teams in Yorkshire and the north east. We offer a wide range of ecological surveys and conservation land management work that actively promotes and supports you with your requirements for the biodiversity management of open space. Natural land management solutions are available for all types of residual land throughout the UK, ranging from basic amenity mowing and litter-picking to complex, ecologically sensitive sites.

Helping you to fast-track planning consent

We work with many business types and operators including property developers, land owners, transport, highways and general site managers. Our expertise in ecological surveys helps to navigate our clients through often-complex projects to ensure that environmental compliance is met in terms of planning regulation, whilst suitably enhancing the ecological aspects of the land. We offer the optimum balance of being commercially in tune with our clients’ needs whilst being fully equipped to provide guidance and practical solutions that will allow the land to flourish in an environmentally positive way for many years to come.

In-depth ecological surveys

As highly-skilled ecological consultants working across the UK, Betts undertakes a comprehensive list of ecological surveys and protected species surveys, delivering a meaningful and useful report. We guide you through the process and draw on our in-depth knowledge of government ecological planning policy and legislation. Whether it’s bat surveys, newt surveys, bird surveys, protected species surveys or overall habitat surveys, our team of ecological consultants can help you understand exactly what you need to know and advise you on the best solution.

Ongoing site maintenance and land management

Our environmental consultancy work often leads us to public open space land management projects and we currently manage many estates for which we were instrumental in developing a biodiversity plan for, as part of the environmental compliance for planning requirements. We work closely with property development teams and land owners to achieve their specific objectives, taking the strain out of this specialist area of biodiversity
management.

In practical terms, we can also manage the open space during and after the construction phase, in line with the management plan established. This might mean mowing, weeding, hedging, planting and other important site maintenance. Wherever possible, we seek to enhance the natural habitats of the sites that we manage, creating pockets of nature for people to enjoy on their doorsteps. Whatever your ecological or environmental conservation requirements, please call our Worcestershire offices to find out how our experts can practically help you.
