Ecological Assessment Reports are required to understand the ecology impacts of developments and planning applications.
Ecological reports are often required when there is an overlay that specifies the need for one, or during a subdivision.
Our reports carefully consider the biodiversity and ecology strategy that municipal or state planners have set out.
We then visit you site, and accurately report what is there, and how it may be impacted.
This information is then supplied to you, or your planner, which becomes part of your development plan.
Supplying this information often speeds the process as it alleviates one aspect of the unknown impacts of a new development.
In many ways there is a cost-benefit case to be made for supplying a ecology report with your planning application, as it also gives you and the planners a snapshot of where the site was at when planning commenced. Usually there are opportunities to demonstrate improvements to the site, which only become feasible when combined with a development. These may help your application progress in a more timely manner.
