Survey Calendar

Ecological surveys must be undertaken at the correct time of year or there is the risk that a species will not be recorded as it may be hibernating or dormant. If the surveys are undertaken outside the accepted survey period they will not provide a sufficiently robust baseline against which to assess the impacts of a development. This may lead to planning permission being refused or the discovery of protected species during works which can lead to significant project delays and additional costs.

 Our Survey Calendar identifies the optimal periods for survey work to ensure the results are accurate and robust.
