About this event

Considering ecology throughout the design process and identifying constraints early on will help ensure projects are more likely to be approved and are less likely to lead to significant costs and delays.

The focus will be on common ecological constraints to development and how to recognise them, including legally protected species and invasive species. Specific case studies relevant to the east of England will be used as examples.
