Leigh Ecology - Protected Species and Habitat Surveys

Protected Species and Habitat Surveys Cheshire, Nationwide Roy Leigh - Principal Ecologist at Leigh Ecology Experienced Ecologists in Cheshire, North West and Nationwide

“Leigh Ecology are an invaluable ecology consultant. Their involvement was essential to our project, which had incurred issues with Badgers, Bats and Newts. It was facing long delays in the hands of another ecologist. Roy’s experience enabled our client to respond to the needs of the wildlife quickly and professionally, liaise with Planning and the Construction team. Unequivocally proactive, his approach was excellent..”
