Experienced planning ecologists at Place Services provided six months’ locum support to Hertfordshire County Council ecology team. They provided advice to district councils across Hertfordshire, advising on ecology matters and providing recommendations from pre-application through to planning conditions.
We have enjoyed the opportunity to support Hertfordshire County Council through a period of staff shortages and high workloads, working from County Hall in Hertford three days per week. We saw ourselves as an extension to the team, sharing our knowledge and expertise to ensure that the local planning authorities fulfil their legal duties towards the natural environment and do so in a way that brings positive benefits to people and wildlife.
