Code for Sustainable Homes Ecology Surveys by Landvision

From May 2008, all new homes will be rated on their green credentials, as part of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) which is a scheme which Local Authorities can use in the planning process. The Code is the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes;  Landvision undertake CSH ecology surveys and land use reports, for these sections of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH).

Once you order your CSH Ecology survey and report from Landvision’s ecology team, Landvision’s team of ecology experts, will be your Suitably Qualified Ecologist  (SQE). We have extensive experience with respect to Breeam and CSH ecology assessments on many sites, since the start of Breeam ecology and CSH ecology surveys and reports.  Thus, your site will become a more sustainable development on sites where protected species or rare habitats and biodiversity occur.
