In order to demonstrate safeguard against the potential that an offence might be committed in respect of legally protected species, we offer a sensible ‘Pre-demolition Protected Species Appraisal’ service. This survey is basically an ecological risk assessment, that not only identifies what legally protected species may be present, but gives practical advice as to how any of the species found may be managed in order to achieve the demolition without any risk of a negative effect upon legally protected wildlife or penalties to quarry staff.
If would like to see an example of a pre-demolition due diligence report, why not send us a message, email us using ku.oc.locea@ofni or call us on 01278 429290 and we will provide a case-study to suit the context of your project. We look forward to hearing from you!
