National Delivery with Local Expertise

The Wildlife Trust Consultancies comprises a group of 23 local consultancies delivering terrestrial and marine ecological services, landscape architecture, arboriculture and habitat management services across the UK and Ireland. Working on a diversity of projects from single dwellings to multi-million pound infrastructure schemes, we can support you throughout the biodiversity journey in the planning system.

Our experienced consultants offer deep local knowledge of habitats, species and planning processes such as green/blue infrastructure, local nature recovery and tree strategies, benefitting projects through the provision of bespoke and pragmatic ecological solutions tailored to the local context. This expertise is fundamental to understanding natural capital, it underpins delivery of nature-based solutions and the achievement of biodiversity and environmental net gain. 

The excellent relationships and trust that our Consultancies have established with Local Planning Authorities and statutory and non-statutory consultees, enable us to provide authoritative advice based on a thorough understanding of requirements to get projects through planning.
