Ecology and developmentPBA’s experience and expertise make us the ideal choice when dealing with all ecological and environmental development concerns.


A wide range of UK legislation exists for the protection of sites and species of ecological value within Britain. This includes the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended), the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010, the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 (the NERC act), and the Water Environment (England and Wales) Regulations 2003 (the Water Framework Directive).


Ecological survey of proposed development sites may be required by local authority planning departments, environmental regulators, or in response to the result of an initial ecological survey of the site. Larger projects with greater potential for ecological impact are often subject to an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), for which an Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) may be required. PBA Applied Ecology is equipped with the staff, capability, and experience to perform a wide range of services within the ecological and environmental sector.
