Ecological Surveys

We recommend you get in touch early in your project so that surveys can be scheduled to avoid any delays.

We offer a range of surveys including protected species surveys and habitat surveys.

It is important that you give consideration to your ecological survey requirements early in the planning stages of your development as seasonal limitations can restrict survey effort. In some cases ecological surveys may need to be spread over a period of up to 12 months or longer. 

Our seasonal survey planner can help you with your planning.

Orbis Ecology Protected Species Survey Timetable

Our initial consultation usually includes a desk-based site study and site assessment which will assess your site and identify the potential for rare or protected wildlife. As a result of this survey work we can advise if further, more detailed surveys will be required.

Request a Survey

Surveys are followed up with a full and comprehensive report. This document can be submitted with your planning application. Reports provide details of the survey results, and recommendations for mitigation or site enhancement where appropriate.

If you think that your development may disturb protected species let us know and we can enable affective solutions that work for you and for wildlife.

Contact us online or call our main enquiries number on 01626 638042 for our South & North Devon offices where we will be happy to discuss your project.
