These are the main services we offer, but we would be very happy to discuss your requirements outside these categories.

If you need further explanation or have any questions, please Contact us.


Environmental Impact Assessments

Environmental impact assessments are required on larger developments where they are triggered by Planning Regulations.

Ecology – Biodiversity Reviews

We always make recommendations to enhance a site’s biodiversity value.

Ecology – Phase 1 and Phase 2 Ecological Surveys

Surveys are required by planning authorities where a proposed development may impact wildlife.

Ecology – Construction Support

We are experienced in providing Ecological Clerk of Works duties to major civil engineering projects, and provide the required monitoring and reporting function to ensure wildlife legislation requirements are met.

If your development needs to proceed and there are risks to animals that may be present, we can provide a licensed ecologist to be on site to oversee operations and deal with protected species and other animals under the relevant Natural England license.

Ecology – European Protected Species Licensing

We are experienced in applying for Natural England European Protected Species mitigation licenses.

Ecology – Wildlife Surveys

We undertake surveys for a range of protected species.

Ecology – Wildlife Fencing

Greenlight delivers projects that require wildlife fencing, from the initial surveys through to any animal capture and translocation. We cover wildlife fencing for reptiles and amphibians, including great crested newt, and are experienced in the sourcing, installation and translocation of such animals.

Landscape – Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments

We appraise impacts based on the latest guidance from the Landscape Institute.

Landscape – Landscape Design

We offer a landscape design service which is based on sound ecological principles and best practice, while bringing tangible benefits to the stakeholders.
By involving us in the early stages of the project, and using the assessment as a tool for strategic decision-making, costly delays and challenges during the planning process are able to anticipated, and action can therefore be taken to avoid them.

Arboriculture – Tree Surveys and Arboricultural Impact Assessments

We deliver arboricultural impact assessments, tree inspections and the advice required to meet British Standard 5837:2012 Trees in Relation to design, demolition and construction – Recommendations.

Aerial Photography

Recent advances in aerial photography using unmanned drones or UAVs have allowed us to deploy this technology as an add-on to our existing site survey services.
