Habitat surveys provide the fundamental basis of all ecological surveys. Our ecologists are fully competent in providing the following habitat and vegetation surveys:
- Extended Phase 1 habitat surveys
- Phase 2 Grassland National Vegetation Classification (NVC) surveys
- Hedgerow surveys
Phase 1 habitat surveys
Phase 1 surveys are the baseline for all environmental planning surveys. They are the first step to understanding the ecology on the site and assessing implications of any proposed developments.
Sylvan Ecology have completed initial surveys for a range of projects, including small scale commercial projects, housing developments and renewable energy , all throughout South Wales and the West.
The results of the Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey are used to create habitat maps, and inform any additional surveys that may be required. The results of the surveys may be used to inform a BREEAM / Code for Sustainable Homes assessment.
