We are a well established and expanding ecological consultancy started by Stan Irwin in 1995 who has held a full Natural England bat licence and a licence to disturb barn owls since 1985. (All counties of England) who also holds a Natural Resources Wales full bat licence (All Counties of Wales). Tyrer Ecological Consultants is probably the most established and experienced company, in relation to bats, in the North West of England.

The presence of a protected species at a development site can cause unwanted and costly delays if not addressed correctly, therefore Tyrer Ecological Consultants always advises clients to commission surveys at an early stage i.e. when considering or as soon as they have  purchased a site.  To this end we conduct an initial assessment to identify potential and/or evidence of use by a protected species, and compile a thorough but concise report suitable to submit with Planning Applications.

Our surveys are undertaken by skilled ecologists with a wide range of experience and appropriately licensed for all species, our surveyors have been associated with Tyrer Ecological Consultants for many years and we deliver our surveys within budget and agreed timescales; which is particularly useful at peak survey times when clients need a quick response and turn around of surveys.

We have a vast wealth of experience and a wide range of regular clients, some of which include:

  • Local authorities
  • Highways Agency
  • Welsh Assembly
  • National Trust
  • United Utilities
  • British Waterways
  • Lancashire County Council
  • Liverpool 20/20
