Where planned activities are likely to negatively affect wildlife interests, we advise you on the best course of action to avoid, minimise and mitigate any impacts.

This is particularly important where legally-protected species and habitats are concerned. We also have a Habitat Management Team to create, restore and manage habitats.

To avoid unlawful damage to such wildlife interests, we are able to offer a suite of systems for managing developments and other activities to avoid a net loss of biodiversity interest.
