Furesfen was established in 1997 by Alison Fure. I advise a wide range of clients on the nature conservation interest at their sites and comment on the impact of projects. These include recreational and conservation projects as well as historic buildings.

Biodiversity Net Gain

The new Biodiversity Net Gain Calculator is time consuming and I cannot offer this service. It interferes with monitoring projects especially the collection of time series data from constant effort sites.

Whilst we have been preparing for BNG for the last 2 years, this does not mean that LPA’s have the necessary capacity, leading to tooing and froing of reports, causing delays and stress.

I  will review BNG and UGF for planning applications submitted to LPA’s but only in the Greater London area (in case site visits are indicated). I am not in favour of surveys that are undertaken using satellite imagery and information. This has resulted in many errors.

The Bat Survey Guidelines changed last year and now the licensing arrangements will change this year. As expectations increase they are not always clear.

I reserve the right to decline ambiguous and stressful commissions.
