Habitat Management Planning

habitat management planningHabitat management and restoration plans are often needed in order to obtain funding support or consents, to devise work programmes, and to ensure budgets are planned effectively. If you need a habitat management or restoration plan, we at Penny Anderson Associates Ltd. (PAA) can help you based on our extensive experience and expertise. We specialise in integrating ecology, hydrology and earth sciences with other site requirements including, but not limited to, forestry, game management, recreation, cultural heritage, amenity and water catchment management.

Our Expertise
Management plans often depend on assessing the condition of the sites, the factors that have caused any issues or damage, the value of the habitats and species present and the potential for enhancement. Other site objectives are equally important, often access and recreation, water catchment management, game management or cultural heritage. PAA can provide other specialists where needed (e.g. archaeologists, landscape architects, lawyers, common land experts) and work with them to resolve conflict, devise restoration plans and help apply for financial support.

We have the expertise and experience to prepare management and restoration plans for most types of habitats, groups of species and in a way that integrates other disciplines and objectives for the benefit of biodiversity whilst satisfying the competing needs of our clients.
