Ecology at Smeeden Foreman

Our ecologists provide a full range of ecological services. Survey work includes habitat surveys and detailed survey work for bats, great crested newts, water voles, otters and other protected species. This often leads to the preparation of license applications and proposals for mitigation, which can include habitat creation and species translocation, which we can also organise, co-ordinate and supervise.

The ecologists work very closely with the rest of the team to add value to landscape schemes and enhance the sustainability criteria for developments. We also undertake assessment of proposals and calculate the potential for gaining BREEAM points.
