Planning Support

Ecological advice is often needed to support development in the approach to a planning application, as part of a submission or post consent, in the discharge of conditions. Holbury Consultancy Service Ltd can:

  • Assume a strategic ecological role within a project team, inputting to the evolution, development and delivery of the project concerned
  • Advise in relation to all aspects of Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG), inclusive of BNG calculations
  • Negotiate and agree the scope of any ecological survey work with all relevant stakeholders
  • Arrange for all ecological survey work required for a scheme and advise on any implications arising for the planning application and/or masterplanning
  • Provide all ecological documentation needed to support a planning application
  • Assume responsibility for the discharge of all planning conditions relating to ecology
  • Locate, negotiate and secure receptor sites needed to receive common reptiles translocated from a development site
  • Advise on the implications of any European Protected Species identified on a development site, and ensure that all work is carried out sufficient to address the requirements of Natural England’s licensing protocols
