Phase 1 and scoping

It is important that ecology is considered at an early stage in any development. DWS carry out initial ecological scoping surveys, ecological risk assessment and protected species risk assessment surveys using the standard extended Phase 1 guidelines in order to identify potential opportunities and constraints at an early stage.

Early identiciation is crucial as certain species, such as Great Crested Newts and Bats have a restricted survey season and significant delays can result unless expert advice is sought at an early stage.

Initial survey Phase¬† 1 surveys are the foundation required to deliver high quality sustainable development demanded by today’s planning process. Contact DWS to make sure your project is a success by working with nature from the start.
