Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

Prices start from £450 exclusive of VAT


The field season should be considered as starting in late March/early April in the south and late April/early May in the north. The season generally ends about mid-October, although in a mild season it may be possible to carry out some survey work in November. (JNCC Guidelines. 2010 Rev.)

On sites where habitats are easily identified as being of low ecological value-such as those dominated by hardstanding or of amenity grassland, surveys may well be undertaken out of these time frames.


Brindle & Green specialise in preparation of these surveys and reports to facilitate planning applications. These reports are often required prior to a planning application submission and are used to identify baseline values and any possible constraints.
