Wildlife Assessment Check

The Wildlife Assessment Check is a free online tool from The Partnership for Biodiversity in Planning.

The tool has been designed to help householders and smaller developers who are making planning applications, checking if work is permitted development or intending to undertake works to listed buildings.

It allows applicants to check whether their proposed site and works are likely to require expert ecological advice before making their application. It aims to smooth out the application process by encouraging applicants to address potential ecological impacts early on.

For further information please see the Biodiversity in Planning's web page.
