Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

This survey (also referred to as an initial ecological assessment) is the baseline ecological survey required to demonstrate protected wildlife and habitats have been considered as part of your Planning Application. This survey can take place at any time of year.

A PEA can be submitted early with your Planning Application, or will be asked for as part of the Planning Consultation phase. Planning and Land Resource Management may be satisfied with just the provided PEA, or may indicate further protected species surveys are required. We will advise you if this is likely to be the outcome early, as protected species surveys are constricted by seasonal time constraints.

Nurture Ecology were key for us in recommending many environmental enhancement measures that both helped our application pass and also should result in a real boost to the wildlife at our site. We found the whole team passionate about their work and always eager to listen and incorporate our plans. I would definitely recommend Nurture ecology for anyone looking for a similar service
