Protected species surveys may be required before all kinds of development or land management works, to ensure legal compliance and satisfy planning conditions.
All our reports are produced to the highest standards, and provide effective evidence and advice to support your planning application.

Our experienced team of ecologists are fully qualified to survey for domestic and European Protected Species such as:
Bats are one of the most commonly encountered protected species during development and land management operations, as a result of their use of buildings, trees, and structures as favoured roost sites. Our team of licensed ecologists can assist with every aspect of survey and mitigation requirements relating to bats.
Our ecologists hold the necessary licenses and experience to conduct all aspects of great crested newt surveys, and are able to produce European Protected Species license applications on your behalf.
Maydencroft has a team of licenced ecologists who are able to assist with every aspect of survey and mitigation requirements relating to dormice.
The ecology team at Maydencroft will conduct an initial Habitat Suitability Assessment for otters, as part of an extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey where a water body is present on site.
Our ecologists have experience using a range of survey techniques to determine the presence and status of badger setts.
Maydencroft ecologists are experienced in using practical reptile survey methods, and can provide ecological method statements to minimise the direct risks posed to reptiles during operations. We can also design and implement mitigation strategies for developments which are considered to have a significant impact on local reptile populations.
Maydencroft will conduct an initial habitat suitability assessment for water voles where a waterbody is present on site.
We offer a range of services including electrofishing surveys, moving stock to and from fisheries and assessing the suitability of fisheries.
A red squirrel survey may be required before commencement of construction. We can conduct surveys and produce mitigation strategies for red squirrels following best practice guidelines set out by the Forestry Commission.
Our ecologists are able to carry out terrestrial invertebrate surveys and create mitigation plans which may be required for development projects.
The ecology team at Maydencroft will conduct an initial habitat suitability assessment for pine martens as part of an extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey where suitable habitat is present on site.
Our ecologists will carry out surveys and offer guidance for mitigation, following the Common Standards Monitoring guidance for birds and BTO’s Breeding Bird Survey (BBS).
This list is not exhaustive, so please get in touch for the full range of services we can offer.
