Client & Location
Major national property agents – East Midlands
Betts Ecology carried out initial baseline surveys, followed by detailed appraisals of terrestrial birds, mammals, herpetofauna, macro-invertebrates (entomology), botany (including Phase 2 phytosociology), general aquatic fauna & flora, and ecological impact assessments. Bats, otters, muntjac, peregrines, reptiles, nine-spined stickleback orchids, lichens and Japanese knotweed were of special consideration.
Betts Ecology produced a full suite of specialist technical reports and proposals for avoidance, mitigation and compensation working in concert with the local planning authority and wildlife organisations to deliver project-sensitive biodiversity protection and enhancement.
