Habitat surveys

We carry out Phase 1 and Extended Phase 1 habitat surveys, as well as hedgerow surveys using nationally-accepted methodologies; the site is surveyed and habitats are identified and mapped using standard habitat categories.

Extended Phase 1 surveys include more detailed protected species recording and the assessment of habitat suitability for protected species.

Where more detailed botanical recording is required, a survey to National Vegetation Classification (NVC) standards is undertaken.
