Welcome to Elite Ecology

Elite Ecology is a dynamic and innovative ecological consultancy which offers wide-ranging environmental solutions for planning applications and personal interest. We ensure that the professional advice that we give to our clients remains clear, concise and compliant with the relevant ecological legislation. Our headquarters are located centrally within the county of Staffordshire and we have a team of experienced ecologists based around the UK. This enables us to carry out wildlife surveys (including bat surveys and great crested newt surveys amongst others) nationwide for competitive prices and to a high standard. Our aim is to protect species, habitats and our natural environment.

We are able to provide a variety of different services and wildlife surveys with ideas to promote environmental protection. Some of the services we offer are:

Our experience in all of the above is vast and our services will always be speedy, friendly and highly price competitive.

In addition to our core activities, we offer a specialist service to enhance domestic gardens for our native wildlife, bespoke to your requirements. This service is suitable for any garden within the United Kingdom and can equally be an ideal gift for someone who loves wildlife. Head over to our Garden Wildlife Plan page to find out more about our packages.

We also have a popular shop where we sell habitats and nest boxes for a wide variety of species. This includes bat boxes and bird boxes which can be used for compensation purposes to ensure developments can proceed smoothly, whilst also taking into account the impact on protected species.

As Gifford Pinchot once wrote, ‘The first great fact about conservation is that it stands for development’ and as a company we aim to incorporate conservation within any developments. As a species we have a duty to protect our wildlife, and we will push towards achieving this goal within the progressive world.

As we are currently into planning for approximately 5000 units on over 1000 acres l need to be able to pick up the phone ASAP to speak to the boss of the consultants who are carrying out our reports, in Elite Ecology case if l cannot speak with Richard ,l would leave a message to return my call, this return call from Richard normally happens within 30/45 minutes. This is an excellent service to me.
