Landscape Science Consultancy Ltd
Established in 1991, Landscape Science Consultancy Ltd is a proven and well-respected multi-disciplinary consultancy. The Practice has built its name on providing high-quality baseline ecology and landscape audits, habitat design, management plans, contract administration and providing Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) often within tight deadlines.
To maximise the benefit of our expertise we recommend that you contact us as early as possible in the project life cycle, ideally at the feasibility stage. This will enable your design team to consider all ecological and landscape impacts and potential constraints from the outset of a project, helping to avoid the need for costly revisions once a project is underway.
Featured Case Study
Landscape Science Consultancy Ltd was commissioned to undertake ecological surveys of a number of brooks in northern England. These sites were identified by the Environment Agency as areas where water could be held back to accommodate high flows after rain to alleviate flooding downstream. Our objective was to assess the existing ecology on the sites and the potential impacts from the proposals.
Ecology is an important factor for developers to consider. Landscape Science Consultancy Ltd can provide a baseline ecological risk assessment and advise on any potential constraints on site. All we require from the developer is a topographical map of the proposed development area. Then using desk-top study methods such as aerial photographs and internet data sites, we can identify areas of potential wildlife interest that would need to be investigated further.
Baseline risk assessments are an opportunity to obtain an ecological snapshot of a site and enable developers to plan project timescales and budgets more effectively.
A site visit can be undertaken if a more comprehensive picture is required.
