DON’T MISS ECOLOGY SEASON
Given all that is going on currently, it is unsurprising that clients are concerned about their projects being adversely affected and unfortunately, one major delay that could occur, at the moment, if not addressed, relates to ecology surveys.
Ecological surveying is a seasonal process and with the short time now open for surveys to be carried out, it is essential that ecology work continues as normal to avoid lengthy or costly delays to planned and proposed projects. Our resident ecology team is working hard to complete projects and carry out appropriate surveys whilst the window of opportunity is open. Of course, we are taking every precaution and we have installed some new temporary protocols with our surveyors following the latest guidance for onsite visits and keeping everyone safe. These include maintaining the social distancing policy, attending sites alone and maintaining high biosecurity measures.
It is vital that ecological work is carried out as normal – if not, they can be delayed for a year or more due to missed opportunities when the survey season is available.
We are determined to avoid this possibility for the sake of our clients. If you need any ecology work carrying out for your proposed site or planned works, then please contact us as soon as possible and we can schedule in the essential work for you; preventing anyone missing out on this important time of year.
