ESL (Ecological Services) Limited were formed in 1995 and are one of the UK’s longest established ecological consultancies. We work nationwide from our base in the beautiful Cathedral city of Lincoln and have built a reputation for quality, efficiency and customer service in an industry where word-of-mouth generates the bulk of our business. In 21 years of trading there isn’t an ecological issue that we have been unable to resolve.
Our dedicated team can take your project all the way through the planning system, from pre-purchase site appraisals through to attendance at Public Inquiry. We can also help you discharge planning conditions and fulfil Section 106 requirements, including the design and creation of new habitats, the translocations of animals or plant communities, and post-works monitoring. We also act as Ecological Clerk of Works.
Over the years, ESL has worked on a diverse range of projects from straight forward barn conversions to large housing developments, quarries, landfills, wind farms, airports and new container terminals. We’ve even worked at Buckingham Palace!
Our team are members of professional bodies including the Institute of Biology (IBiol) and the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). ESL is also approved under the Contractors Health and Safety (CHAS) Assessment Scheme.
Commissioning an ecological survey can be a daunting task. You need to know that the consultant you employ has the necessary experience and is working on your behalf. At ESL we are more than happy to provide examples of our work on request. Let us bring our wealth of experience to bear on your next project.
