Preliminary Ecological Appraisal


Preliminary Ecological Appraisals provide baseline ecological information and are the initial form of ecological assessment for most development projects.  PEAs have superseded the ‘Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey’ and are now commonly requested by local planning authorities.  The habitats within the site are evaluated and mapped (Phase 1 habitat mapping) and the site is appraised for its suitability to support species of material consideration to planning, such as those that are legally protected or legally controlled.
