AEcol have a comprehensive understanding of our role in the mineral and waste planning process and offer ecological advice in all aspects of Mineral and Waste Planning to Quarry Companies and Environmental Consulting Companies. In over a decade of service, we have provided ecological planning advice in respect of stone quarries, sand, gravel and clay pits, oil-fields and even decommissioned mines. We’ve produced Ecological Impact Assessments for projects ranging from a handful of hectares to well over a hundred in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and even the Republic of Ireland.

We’ve worked with the client’s own in-house teams to find solutions to seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to secure planning permission. However, we’re equally happy to work with other ecological consulting firms and environmental consulting companies, to produce a high-quality submission with which everyone involved can feel justifiably proud, and every time the result has been positive. And we don’t rest on our laurels; if a project throws up a question for which we weren’t absolutely confident we have an answer, we will either forgo our profits and spend the money on gaining the legal review or expert opinion that will robustly answer the question, or we stand-aside and direct the client to a team who are better qualified in the context of that project.
