  • Innovative: We use innovative methods to achieve the best ecological solutions.
  • Pragmatic: We take a pragmatic approach and work closely with local authorities and planning departments to successfully see your projects through the planning process to gain planning consent.
  • Cooperative: We work cooperatively with both our clients and regulatory bodies.
  • Quality Assured: We produce the highest quality work and provide a first class service to both our long standing and new clients. We understand that time is money and deliver our reports quickly.
  • Clear: We write reports that are easy to read, accurate and outline practical solutions.


Thanks for the strategy in such a prompt and efficient manner. I’m happy with it and hopefully planning will be too!

The quality and efficient time-scale of your survey and report are much appreciated.
John Matthews Planning
A clear, prompt and pragmatic service that has informed the early design stages of our scheme. Early identification of the high-value ecology has allowed us to mitigate risks to the project and organisation through considered design and precautionary measures.
Chris, Development Surveyor
Your service has been vital to keeping momentum on our demolition contract and in helping negotiations with local authority ecologists. Your site supervision has been excellent, providing solutions and maintaining progress on site with minimal disruption.

Acer provided a very professional service understanding the needs of the Householder/Developer, and remained dedicated to producing a Pragmatic and Workable Solution within the context of the stringent Ecological requirements.
Marc Deaves, Architect
Acer Ecology reacted immediately when I needed to discharge one of my planning conditions in a hurry. They surveyed the site and submitted a report within eight days of my initial inquiry. They were extremely helpful and the planning condition was discharged without any issues. They are highly recommended.
W. Paetel
We were all delighted with your knowledge of and enthusiasm for the site and with the outcome of the meeting which served to obviate a lot of concerns that the owners and myself had. Once again, thanks.
