    We commissioned UEEC to do the Habitat Regulations Assessment for Southampton’s City Centre Action Plan, which promotes major development relatively close to a number of international ecology designations. We’re very happy with the quality of work UEEC produced, which was also on time and on budget.

We commissioned Urban Edge Environmental to carry out an HRA for the Eco-town project, supported by visitor surveys and green infrastructure planning to address possible impacts. Their team is committed to the profession, which was demonstrated in the high quality of work. Able to deal with a range of stakeholders with diverse views and filter out the key issues. Got to grips with the requirements quickly and understood the project’s wider sensitivities and interdependencies. The reporting style was consistent, balanced and well received by stakeholders and the client team.

We use Urban Edge Environmental for ecological appraisal services for our renewable energy projects across the UK, and have always found them extremely professional and able to meet tight timescales on site visits and reporting. More importantly, they are able to unpick complex ecological issues that allow a sensible route forwards for our developments. Thanks for all your help these last few years.

Isle of Wight Council Highways Team sought advice on the environmental implications of a nearly £1billion, 25 year programme of highways upgrade, maintenance and operation. Working on the Habitats Regulations Assessment (and associated Strategic Environmental Assessment), they took a very professional and knowledgeable approach to the subject and met all our tight deadlines with ease. They quickly became part of the PFI team and interacted well. The director was an asset at meetings with prospective bidders and outside bodies such as Natural England and the Environment Agency, always having the necessary information to hand. I have no hesitation in making a recommendation.

Urban Edge, within a very short timescale, provided a thorough and accurate SEA for our Neighbourhood Plan. Over half the Parish lies within the Chichester Harbour AONB with its protected areas for nature conservation, some being of international significance. We also have nearly 40 Listed buildings, several historic settlements, including a Conservation Area, and many other constraints. The work done by Urban Edge was invaluable in helping select sites for the 350 required new homes (12% increase parish wide) and went unchallenged. They were easy to work with and we would not hesitate to have them again.

We’ve used Urban Edge Environmental for ecological advice on a number of development projects and have always found the services they offer to be cost-effective and timely. The advice they provide is clearly set out, justified by the findings of their on-site survey work, practical in its approach and responsive to our clients’ requirements for the site.

Urban Edge provide an extremely professional, knowledgeable and good value service, tailored to fit to our often challenging timeframes. Reporting is always detailed and clear on what are complex technical areas, whilst advice is always quick and pragmatic. I would have no hesitation in recommending UECC’s services to anyone.

I instructed Urban Edge in the course of 2013 for a full ecological assessment of a redundant pair of Victorian buildings, as part of a relatively complex development proposal in Hastings. I found Nick and his team to be a pleasure to work with and they gave me clear, pragmatic advice throughout the process.
