our core skills
EPR is a professional ecological consultancy offering first class ecologists, ecology surveys and advice, with more than 25 years experience of tackling the complex interface between biodiversity and land-use planning.
We pride ourselves on providing sound ecological advice of the highest quality, which, if necessary, we are able to defend robustly at Public Inquiry, and which we believe pays dividends to our clients in ensuring the best possible chance of a positive project outcome.
We understand the commercial pressures that many of our clients face, and we apply our ecological expertise to develop pragmatic solutions, often bringing benefits to the wider project whilst withstanding scrutiny within the context of the UK planning system.
We carry out all surveys, including bat surveys, reptile surveys, Great Crested Newt surveys, Dormouse surveys, Phase 1 Habitat surveys, bird surveys and everything in-between. Our strong background in the UK Planning process then enables us to translate the results of these into meaningful advice on project delivery.
