Phase 1 Habitat Survey

This initial survey is a recommended overview of the ecological value of a site ensuring that any ecological issues are identified early in the planning stages avoiding costly delays in the scheduling of works.


We undertake phase 1 habitat surveys and assessments identifying the habitats present on site and the ecological importance of these to inform planning proposals.  The phase 1 surveys plot the habitats with reference to the standard phase 1 habitat definitions (Phase 1 Survey Handbook; Joint Nature Conservation Commitee), assesses the likely presence or absence of protected and notable species, and evaluates the ecological impacts of the proposals.


Where suitable habitats are found during phase 1 surveys there maybe a requirement for additional phase 2 surveys to establish if notable and/or protected species are found on site  . (See Protected Species Survey)
