Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (PEA)
A PEA of your site for your project - call for a quote!
A PEA, presents the results of initial ecological appraisals and surveys associated with a proposed development and is used to identify ecological constraints associated with a particular site, identify further ecological surveys that may be required to inform an ecological impact assessment, and inform the design phase of a project (CIEEM, 2013). Where it can be concluded that the project would have no significant effects, no mitigation is required or no further surveys are required, a PEA report can be included with a planning application (CIEEM, 2015); however, in most cases, it is recommended that it is superseded by an EcIA report which is designed to provide planning decision makers with the information required to determine the planning application
