Rachel Hacking Ecology is a commercially aware consultancy, working for a wide variety of clients across the residential and commercial sectors. We undertake surveys on all types of site, from small sites such as housing extension or single units, to large scale residential and commercial developments as well as new roads and railways.

We offer various types of support, from pre-planning appraisals and land allocation assessments, to ecology surveys required for planning determination and we also provide support post-planning with discharge of planning conditions, mitigation, licensing and Ecological Clerk or Works.

We support and work with the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and all our team are trained in the planning process, so can offer assistance at any stage and guide clients regarding the ecological requirements for a planning application.
