Woodfield Ecology regularly provides support to homeowners carrying out extensions, loft conversions and other building work including bat and barn owl surveys, bat mitigation licences and watching briefs undertaken by a licenced bat ecologist.

We also work with private developers who are looking to re-purpose redundant buildings or build on small plots and have also assisted on a number of sustainable self-builds.

We can provide a tailored and cost effective service that will allow your plans to progress smoothly and without unnecessary delays.
