Ecological Clerk of Works
Cherry Tree Ecology’s Staff are experienced at acting as Ecological Clerk of Works for vegetation clearance, mitigation works like licensed fence installation, hibernacula and artificial badger sett creation.
Ecological Mitigation and Management Plan
Ecological Mitigation and Management Plans (EMMP) detail the creation and management of new habitats and species mitigation. These can be required as a planning condition and aim to maintain the habitats long-term post construction. EMMP usually cover the first five years post construction with monitoring to ensure that the mitigation is successful.
