Churton Ecology Services

Churton Ecology offers a wide range of ecological services for development and conservation projects. These services support ecological planning requirements for land agents, homeowners, developers, landscape architects, foresters, environmental consultants, private individuals and conservation bodies.

Below is a sample of the services we offer. For further information or if you require a service that isn’t listed here, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Where initial visits to development sites cannot provide sufficient information on all species, more detailed surveys will be required in order to complete the ecological assessment report. We hold survey and mitigation licences for key species.

Where required, we can carry out more specialised botanical surveys focusing on target or individual species of critical and Schedule 8 taxa.

Several terms are now used by local authorities for the initial ecological survey on a development sites, as follows: Preliminary Ecological Assessment (PEA), Extended Phase 1 survey, Ecological Assessment and Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA).

Phase 1 surveys aim to map habitats at their most basic level. Primarily a botanically based survey, it also aims to identify any particular areas of greater biodiversity.

We offer advice and devise habitat management and habitat creation plans to suit a variety of different projects, ranging from protected species mitigation to the conservation of priority habitats and/or priority species.
