Most habitats in the UK require management to maintain their ecological value. Many species also depend on management to provide a continuation of the conditions which they need to survive.

EMEC Ecology provides management plans tailored to the specific requirements of its clients. Our capabilities include:

  • A full range of ecological surveys to inform management planning.
  • Management plans for sites, habitats and species which provide realistic, practical recommendations to meet achievable management goals.
  • Plans for nature conservation, to offset development impacts, satisfy planning conditions and improve the 'sustainability' of projects.
  • Strategies for control of invasive species.
  • Habitat creation schemes.

In recent years EMEC Ecology has produced habitat management plans for Brierley Forest Park in the Ashfield District, Gedling Country Park and Bestwood Country Park, both on the outskirts of Nottingham. We have also produced a management plan for a sixth form college in Leicester and for the land surrounding Ambergate Reservoir in Derbyshire.

Landscape and habitat management plans are also often required as part of BREEAM assessments.

EMEC Ecology work with our in-house team who can undertake practical management works and habitat creation. EMEC Land Management have followed prescriptions detailed in our management plans on Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust nature reserves and sites within Nottingham City on behalf on the council.
