Ecological planning advice

Our role

We offer an ecological enquiry service which advises how to conserve and enhance biodiversity in relation to Council services and functions.

How we can help you

If you intend to submit a proposal to us that we need to give our consent to (e.g. waste and mineral developments), contact us at the pre-application stage and we will be able to tell you what biodiversity information, surveys and assessments you should provide. This is part of a paid pre-application advice service but our free general advice for making county planning applications can be found here

For enquiries email ecology@gloucestershire.gov.uk

Gloucestershire Centre for Environmental records (GCER) offers a data enquiries service that provides access to species records, habitat data and details of designated sites.
