Red Squirrel Surveys
Harmil Environmental's team of expert ecologists have extensive experience in undertaking red squirrel surveys and producing professional and comprehensive ecological reports required to meet planning conditions.
Working throughout the UK, we have worked on a wide range of projects throughout the UK and continue to work with private clients, architects, developers and local authorities. Our aim is to make developments proceed as smoothly as possible whilst working under the jurisdiction of the wildlife laws.
