Data collected by ecological monitoring is fundamental to understanding the effect of development on the natural environment. Monitoring information not only helps to evaluate the success of mitigation but also informs ongoing land management.
It can also contribute to better and more cost effective ways of delivering a project and frequently comprises part of the planning compliance and due diligence process for a site.
At Landmark, we understand the importance of ensuring that site monitoring commitments are met and that data is gathered in a timely and cost effective manner. On behalf of our clients we negotiate the scope of the monitoring strategy with the relevant authorities, to ensure that it is proportionate to the purpose. We prepare detailed monitoring plans, to include survey design, sampling procedures, data analysis, and reporting methods. We use our experience of site monitoring to ensure that strategies are accurately costed and will deliver the required outcome.
