Ecology Survey

Acer Ecology recently carried out an extended Phase 1 habitat survey at a site that was proposed for residential development in north Cardiff. Few ecological constraints were identified on site, although the interfaces between an area of rank grassland and the hedgerow were considered to have the potential to support reptiles. Targeted reptile surveys were subsequently recommended, which showed that the site supported a low population of slow worms. Appropriate mitigation measures were implemented to ensure that the project progressed in a smooth, timely and legal manner through the planning process.

We regularly undertake ecological surveys throughout Cardiff, including the surrounding areas of Barry, Dinas Powys, Penarth, Caerphilly and Newport.
