How Scott Cawley Ecologists Can Help Local Authorities?

Scott Cawley Ltd. provides ecological consultancy services and training on biodiversity and ecology (in particular on Appropriate Assessment) to both local authorities and public sector organisations. We are regularly called on by local authorities to help them fulfil their legal obligations to protect biodiversity in a number of ways: • Peer review services - reviewing and critiquing ecological documentation accompanying planning applications to assist planning authorities in making planning decisions. • Ecological surveys and impact assessments for local authority developments (including Part VIII projects), including large scale and complex development types in ecologically sensitive areas. • Preparing documentation and providing advice to assist local authorities in the making of Appropriate Assessment determinations and Appropriate Assessment Screening Determinations for planning applications and local authoritiesʼ own developments. • Appropriate Assessment services in the preparation of development and other land use plans. • Ecological surveys and specialist ecological advice, such as the preparation of local biodiversity plans and other projects for the protection and enhancement of local biodiversity. • Representing local authorities at Oral Hearings by acting as expert witness for ecological issues. • Providing training on biodiversity and ecology (in particular on Appropriate Assessment) to upskill local authority staff. We have a reputation as a leading authority in the area of Appropriate Assessment and its application to the public sector. We recently prepared guidelines on Appropriate Assessment for the Environmental Protection Agencyʼs inspectors.
