We are happy to hear that Mactaggart & Mickel has been granted planning permission by Loch Lomond and The Trossach National Park Authority for a new housing development in Drymen. We really enjoyed working on this project, as we had the opportunity to provide a wide range of services including; ecological surveys, landscape design, landscape & visual impact assessment and a suite of visualisations. The visualisations package included GIS mapping analysis, photomontages for assessment and CGI visualisations of the open space proposals.
Brindley is seeking additional ecology co-consultants to assist with surveys over the coming season. Appointment would be on an ad-hoc basis, dependent on project requirements. If you are based in Scotland, are registered with a relevant professional body with previous experience of bat activity surveys and wish to gain additional consultation experience, please make contact directly. For further information please contact our Ecological Project Manager, Troy Paterson, via: email@example.com
