Specialist services in Biodiversity and Conservation

At Helmrig Ltd, we offer ecological and biodiversity support for development schemes.


We believe that there are things we all need to be doing to help overcome future biodiversity challenges across all types of developments. We work collaboratively with our clients to examine their land bank and assess suitable opportunities for conservation and environmental plans within a project.

We aim to avoid “clumsy” solutions to any ecological planning concerns, offering positive solutions for planners and developers. With over 40 years of experience we work across a range of settings, including local authorities and housing associations, so why wait? Get in touch to talk to us about your project now.
