Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey

An Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey (also known as Wildlife Survey, Protected Species Survey or Ecological Survey) is the initial phase in assessing a sites ecological potential.  It is therefore the  planning authorities most frequently requested survey.

The survey involves mapping the habitats on site as well as any features of ecological interest. The survey will also look to identify signs of, or potential for, protected species to be present.

Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey includes the following

  • Desk study – Obtain and review Pre-existing ecological data.
  • Field survey –  A site visit to map habitats and look for signs of, or potential for, protected species.
  • Written report – A full written report including field survey and assessment methodologies.
  • Habitat map (produced to JNCC standard phase 1 habitat survey classification).

The results of the survey highlight the need to carry out any further work to fully evaluate a sites ecological value and any potential impacts. If further surveys are required these will be communicated to you.

Abricon can undertake a Extended Phase 1 Habitat survey at any time of year, however the optimal period is during spring or summer, when the majority of plants are in flower.
