Countryside Management

We work with public sector organisations to design, plan and deliver environmentally and financially sustainable countryside management solutions. Uniquely for a multi-disciplinary environmental practice, we have direct knowledge and expertise in all aspects of natural resource conservation gathered from having management responsibility for over 520 hectares of land on behalf of clients in Essex, Hertfordshire and Kent delivered through two ground-breaking initiatives the Essex Grazing and Woodlands Projects.

Drawing upon the full breadth of skills within Place Services, we have the know-how to secure the necessary permissions and funding to ensure successful implementation of countryside management projects from start to finish. Furthermore, we have considerable expertise developing and selling countryside products from conservation-grade meat to firewood and charcoal. 

Our experience extends beyond country parks and nature reserves, and we have helped secure cost-effective and innovative land management solutions on former landfill and quarry sites; delivered biodiversity offsetting schemes associated with major infrastructure projects; and provide contract management to private landowners. 

Our services include:

  • Habitat and Countryside Management
  • Environmental Management and Delivery Plans
  • Ecological Condition Surveys and Risk Assessments
  • Grant and Environmental Stewardship Applications & Compliance Monitoring¬†
