EECOS has experience of completing Ecology and Land Use sections for both BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes (CFSH) Assessments, for a variety of sites including schools, colleges, industrial developments and residential housing projects.

Our involvement requires a site visit to map habitats and assess features of ecological value, as well as searching for evidence of species protected by law. We will then produce a report that will set out which credits are, or could be, available and the measures that will need to be taken in order to secure them. Ideally we would start this process at the earliest stages of the project, as an input into site design and layout can make a significant difference to the end result.

Post-construction we can follow up the requirements of the scheme by producing and implementing a landscape and habitat management plan, training site staff about ecological features, and recommending on-going enhancement for biodiversity.

If you require a quote please send an email to us at eecos@essexwt.org.uk including a brief description of what is proposed, timescales, site plans and any correspondence received from the Local Planning Authority. Alternatively you can contact us in the office on 01621 862986.
