About Us

Sussex Ecology is a small team of ecological consultants and ecologists who undertake ecological surveys for developers and landowners. We work throughout Sussex, Kent and Surrey as well as other counties in the south and to the north of London.  Our office is based near Old Street, London.

Sussex Ecology was formed in 2007. The team originally consisted of a Consultant working on developments and an Ecologist working on landowner sites. In December 2010, the Consultant retired due to ill health. The team has since grown to 5 ecological consultants and continues to grow. Our team has over 10 years experience of work in the ecological field and we have licensed ecologists for protected species (great crested newts, bats, sand lizards etc).

Like most ecologists, we are passionate about wildlife and have an in-depth understanding of ecology, species requirements and habitat management. However, we also acknowledge that there is a need for development (eg housing) and we aim to work in partnership with developers.
