We are Welsh Government Framework Ecologists for Cadw, and for many years have provided biodiversity advice on heritage projects to National Trust, English Heritage, Natural England, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), various local authorities and private organisations, such as Blenheim Palace.
We have a good understanding of the obligations and constraints placed on managers of heritage sites and we are able to work closely with specialist architects, building engineers, funding organisations.
Heritage projects often require advice relating to protected species, particularly bats; BSG Ecology has one of the UK’s most experienced teams in bat survey, mitigation, licensing and assessment.

Our capability includes the following services:
