Ecological Consultant & Bat Survey Cranleigh
Competitive, Fast, Reliable
If you are a developer in the Cranleigh, Waverley or wider Surrey area then your local planning authority will require a bat survey or phase 1 habitat survey to support your development application to consider any potential impact on local habitat at your proposed development site. In accordance to legislation your LPA will, where applicable, need to safeguard European protected species such as e.g. great crested newts and bats against any possible disturbance from your development.
For more information see the Waverley Borough Council web site:
A bat survey or phase 1 habitat survey (also called a protected species survey) will be conducted at your site of proposed development. Species and habitats specifically afforded legal protection under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 or Habitats Regulations 2010 will be referenced. Your resulting interpretive report will be unique to the extent and nature of your site and will, where appropriate, recommend further survey work.

DOES PLANNING IN CRANLEIGH REQUIRE A BAT SURVEY?
Bat and protected species surveys are an integral part of the decision making process and the resulting report(s) will be accounted for by your LPA. An ecological report, in some cases, will also be required to form part of the planning conditions. No matter what your specific case requires, our friendly and pragmatic ecology consultants can provide, without charge, and initial consultation that will look at likely implications on cost and time scale.
