The Illuminated River project - an update


Delivering specialist expertise to the public sector. As the UK’s leading specialist environmental consultancy, we can add considerable expertise to your project.

Expert witness

As specialists in a wide range of ecological and other environmental disciplines, members of the team offer the highest possible standard of technical advice and reporting in all aspects of ecological expert witness advice to contested legal matters.

Government and agencies

We have worked on numerous projects in marine, coastal, estuarine, freshwater, and terrestrial environments for a large number of public sector clients, including the Environment Agency, Natural England, Cefas, States of Jersey, Scottish Government, Forestry Commission and Northern Ireland Environment Agency.

Local and regional public bodies

We advise many public sector bodies on their biodiversity duty and provide practical assistance on a range of different aspects of sustainability and public benefit. For example, our specialist arboriculture team offers tree officer cover, TPO reviews, tree services – with bat inspections delivered by our ecologists – and tree health and hazard assessments (including for Ash dieback). Our EIA team has worked with a number of Councils to help with the entire EIA process and our GIS team has worked closely with local government and other bodies to map all kinds of spatial data.
