Each year we issue many 100’s of reports to support planning applications and have successfully undertaken projects in the following Counties: Berkshire, Bristol, Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Devon (All Councils), Dorset (All Councils), East Sussex, Gloucester (Several Councils), Hampshire (All Councils), Herefordshire, Isle of Wight, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Rutland, Somerset (All Councils), Surrey (Several Councils), West Sussex and Wiltshire.
Several of these Councils have already introduced BNG, which means that we have gained a great deal of experience prior to BNG being introduced nationally.
