Ecological Mitigation & Monitoring
The mitigation scheme or planning conditions for a project will often require the input of an ecologist after planning is granted. CEC’s team of ecologists has extensive experience in ecological monitoring and mitigation, covering Cornwall, Devon and the rest of the South West.
The level and type of input required will vary from project to project, but may include:
- Obtaining licences for disturbance to species (e.g. bats)
- Updating ecological survey prior to start of construction
- Advising on project programme to minimise impacts on wildlife (e.g. nesting birds)
- Advising on BREEAM credits (if not done prior to planning, or in response to small changes in design)
- Watching briefs and/or supervision during work in sensitive parts of a site (e.g. vegetation clearance)
CEC aim to maintain continuity within projects, so the same project manager will usually follow the project through for as long as you need our input. This can benefit you, as the project manager will be familiar with the site, so require less time to familiarise with the project.
