National Delivery with Local Expertise

The Wildlife Trust Consultancies comprises a group of 22 local consultancies delivering terrestrial and marine ecological services, landscape architecture, arboriculture and habitat management services across the UK and Ireland. Working on a diversity of projects from single dwellings to multi-million pound infrastructure schemes, we can support you throughout the biodiversity journey in the planning system.


Our experienced consultants offer deep local knowledge of habitats, species and planning processes such as green/blue infrastructure, local nature recovery and tree strategies, benefitting projects through the provision of bespoke and pragmatic ecological solutions tailored to the local context. This expertise is fundamental to understanding natural capital, it underpins delivery of nature-based solutions and the achievement of biodiversity and environmental net gain. The excellent relationships and trust that our Consultancies have established with Local Planning Authorities and statutory and non-statutory consultees, enable us to provide authoritative advice based on a thorough understanding of requirements to get projects through planning.


We are committed to delivering projects to the highest standard ensuring environmental protection and the health and safety of our staff. Our ecologists are members of their professional body, the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) so you can be confident that their work is consistent with the industry code of practice. They hold the necessary survey and mitigation licences from Natural England, providing you with a one-stop shop for all matters relating to ecology, landscape architecture and habitat design, creation and management.


All our consultancies are affiliated to their local Wildlife Trust; their profits are returned to their parent trust to support the valuable work they undertake in their county, helping them to deliver their vision: to create a living landscape across the UK and Ireland.


Working with the Wildlife Trust Consultancies, therefore, allows access to excellent ecological advice and contributes towards the achievement of Corporate Social Responsibility objectives by benefitting planet, people and purse.
