In preparation for your application Apt Ecology team also undertake Initial surveys during the winter months. These are especially helpful as they will inform you of any further surveys you may require.
A Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA) report, which can be undertaken at any time of the year will identify ecological features that are present or potentially present within the site and surrounding area, it will also identify any additional surveys required.
