Ecology 101 seminar: Bats, birds and trees. What you need to know this spring/summer 

14th March 2016

Attend our free breakfast seminar and find out what you need to know, spot and do during the spring/summer ecology survey window.

On: Thursday 14 April

From 8.20 am to 9.45 am

At: 57A Great Suffolk Street, London, SE1 0BB

Obtaining planning permission for a development may hinge on having sufficient ecology evidence on a number of fronts. In the case of protected species, this evidence can only be obtained at certain times of the year, and there are time and financial penalties for getting it wrong. Navigating trees on development sites through the planning process can be challenging too; having an understanding of trees on building sites and the expectations of the Local Authority is key.

Join us to discuss how to de-risk your project and avoid delays associated with (among others) bats, birds and trees, and receiving planning permission or undertaking work on site.  We’ll provide the tea, coffee and pastries.
