I am an independent consultant providing a high-quality service to the public and private sectors, and am dedicated to meeting the challenge of integrating business development, the environment and conservation.
I am an experienced ecologist with expertise that can provide complete ecological solutions for your project. From small sites with single protected species to complex developments with a range of ecological issues, I apply a scientifically robust approach to meet the individual requirements of my clients.
I carry out bat surveys and assessments for a broad range of habitats and species. Projects requiring bat surveys have been undertaken within Nottinghamshire, Norfolk, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Staffordshire. Bat surveys may be required prior to gaining planning permission from your local planning authorities. Click here for more information.

Phase 1 Habitat Survey
A Phase 1 Habitat Survey is often requested by the Local Planning Authority to accompany a planning application or form part of an Environmental Statement. This survey means that any ecological constraints in a project or design are picked up quickly thus preventing any costly delays. Click here for more information.
