grass snake

Our fully qualified and licensed ecologists have extensive experience in supporting clients where protected species or reptiles are a factor in development.

Common lizard, slow-worm, adder, and grass snake, are very prevalent on brown field sites such as disused quarries and allotments in town centres, as well as in rural habitats. The rarer smooth snake and sand lizard are found in more specialised habitat types. Whatever the habitat, our knowledge and expertise help to ensure that your development proceeds cost-effectively and in compliance with your legal obligations.
