MAB Environment & Ecology Ltd is a specialist provider of wildlife surveys, particularly for bats, great crested newts, birds, barn owls, water voles, otters, badgers, as well as Phase 1 and NVC level botanical and habitat surveys.
These surveys are most often for planning applications, and our reports include the necessary mitigation and legal guidance that are required for smooth passage through the planning system.
We are experts in Wildlife Legislation, applying for many European Protected Species licences each year, which permit disturbance of protected species for development. We have successfully applied for and implemented more than 30 such licences for bats, and we have a very good success rate with our mitigation plans, ensuring that bats continue to thrive alongside development projects.
We also provide BREEAM assessments (Code for Sustainable Homes), Countryside Stewardship applications, and management plans (creating and restoring habitats, controlling invasive plants such as bracken), management of nature reserves and woodland parks.
Our company also produces its own heated bat boxes, which are hand-made by a local craftsman.
