Environmental Impact Assessments

While surveys for fauna and flora are at the core of what we do, and we are recognised as being among the best at these tasks, these are only the first stages in the problem-solving process. The data we collect is a starting point from which we can build a plan with the ultimate aim of meeting a client's needs, while ensuring that the legal obligations for biodiversity and conservation are also met. We have a reputation for coping well with difficult conservation issues, in finding designs for developments to proceed without detriment to wildlife, and we are highly respected by both statutory agencies and clients alike.

Managing a wide range of areas from consultation…

Alba Ecology specialises in ecology. We are acknowledged experts in this field and aim to offer a complete ecology package, from initial desktop ecological scoping, to final design solutions, whether this is for a wind farm, housing estate, nature reserve, or any other development, commercial or otherwise. All of the core ecological services are offered in-house, provided by our own expert team of highly experienced ecologists. Our work is guided by Good Practice Guidelines of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Monitoring (CIEEM) and all staff are members of the Institute.

…to planning and prediction

We provide the complete suite of environmental impact assessments services through scoping to surveying and consultation. This includes pre-planning assessment of birds, mammals, terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, fish, Phase 1 habitats and National Vegetation Classification, prediction of risks, planning of mitigation and compensation, and design of post-construction monitoring.
