Expert Witness

Direct Ecology can offer a comprehensive support service in relation to Public Inquiries. Our professional approach, combined with our extensive experience and knowledge of wildlife legislation, enables us to gather, prepare and present ecological evidence soundly and effectively.

We base our evidence on a thorough initial consultation with your inquiry team and counsel, and where relevant can undertake a detailed assessment of the site and the proposals or issues which affect it. We can provide a suitably qualified Expert Witness if required.
