ECOSA is a leading UK ecological consultancy based in Hampshire and Gloucestershire, and a Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) Registered Practice. Our team of professional ecologists are highly knowledgeable of the planning process in respect of ecology and can advise you on the level of survey effort, assessment and reporting required for your development project. We pride ourselves on our clear and pragmatic advice and competitive prices.

Whether you need a bat survey or a more detailed ecological assessment to achieve biodiversity net gain on site, we provide a complete range of ecological survey and assessment services to support your planning application, conservation project or habitat management planning.

Every project is assigned a dedicated project manager. We will support you through the lifetime of the project, from carrying out an initial Preliminary Ecological Appraisal to establish the suitability of your site to support protected species and notable habitats, through to a detailed Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA), including carrying out protected species surveys and devising mitigation solutions. We can also apply for any Natural England protected species licences required on your behalf.

Our in-house ecological contracting team can provide supervisory services on site, such as during the demolition of a building known to support roosting bats, habitat clearance and management services, and implement any mitigation on site; for example, installing wildlife fencing, building hibernacula and artificial badger setts, or creating new ponds.

ECOSA work on a wide range of projects from small to large scale housing developments, public sector and infrastructure developments. Our clients include private homeowners, architects, planning consultants, developers and councils across the UK. We understand the commercial pressures that our clients face and use our expertise to provide an efficient, practical and cost-effective service whilst complying with relevant legislation, best practice and local planning processes.
