Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA)

Ecological Impact Assessments may be done on their own or as part of a broader Environmental Impact Assessment. They evaluate the cost of human developments on the conservation status of protected species and habitats.

In the UK, Ecological Impact Assessments are often a prerequisite to obtaining planning permission and many other types of statutory consents and authorisations. As such, our experienced team of ecologists carry them out on a daily basis, on projects which involve development, utility infrastructure and land management.

Working in co-operation with our highly skilled landscaping and arboriculture contracting teams, Maydencroft has the unique advantage of being able to oversee on-site ecological mitigation all the way from design to delivery.

Our ecologists are members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental management (CIEEM), and use the CIEEM Guidelines for Ecological Impact Assessment. We’re highly experienced in managing projects from start to finish, including survey design, data collection, impact assessment, mitigation and enhancement.

We’ll collate information gathered during the preliminary ecological appraisal (PEA) and/or other surveys (such as protected species surveys), so the EcIA considers the potential ecological effects of the development and assesses the residual impacts after mitigation.
