About Milner Ecology Ltd

Milner Ecology Ltd was established in April 2007 as an independent ecological consultancy with the aim of providing expert advice to the public and private sectors throughout the UK.

The company was established to meet an increasing need for a targeted and pragmatic approach to the diversity of ecological issues encountered during development projects. The company is committed to maintaining professional standards and is registered with The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and the Society for the Environment (SocEnv) which provide a professional code of conduct. As part of these codes of conduct, Milner Ecology Ltd holds £1 million Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance. We also undertake regular training to keep abreast of the latest developments and legislation. We maintain a Dun and Bradstreet DNS Number (217009886) for tendering purposes and to enable clients to assess our business credit.

The ecological consultancy work undertaken by Milner Ecology Ltd includes ecological survey and assessment, protected species licensing, project management and site supervision. A key aspect of our approach is a commitment to understand and advise on projects from initial conception, throughout the planning process to on-site supervision of construction activities and mitigation measures. Milner Ecology Ltd is able to provide the necessary expertise from project conception to completion or provide involvement with a project at a particular stage to deal effectively in a specific ecological issue. Our approach to ecology is simple, cost-effective and ensures an end product of the highest quality.

Our ecological work goes beyond the straightforward survey and assessment of sites. Milner Ecology Ltd has considerable experience in the management of environmental issues throughout the development process and beyond. This involves legislative requirements such as obtaining SNCO licences associated with protected species, undertaking species and habitat translocation work in advance of development, design and supervision of habitat creation and management works and long-term monitoring to determine the success of mitigation.
