Habitat creation


The knowledge accumulated by our ecologists through survey experience can be utilised to develop habitat creation plans that are appropriate to any location, reflecting the local characteristics in habitat that vary throughout the county. In this way the resulting habitats will more easily integrate with the surrounding countryside, leading to a greater contribution to the restoration of biodiversity at a landscape level.

We can provide habitat creation advice for a wide range of purposes, from landscaping associated with development proposals or road schemes, to compensation for habitats lost during construction and schemes entirely based in conservation. We will always recommend species that are native to the immediate area and appropriate to the environmental and physical conditions of the site.

Our ecologists are accustomed to working with construction and landscape specialists and will supervise the implementation of the plans to ensure a high standard of work.

Examples of our habitat creation work include:

  • Hedgerow planting;
  • Pond and lake creation;
  • Specifications for the planting of various woodland types;
  • Specifications for seed mixes for various grassland types;
  • Enhancement work for the establishment of crayfish populations.
