Welcome to Earth Environmental & Geotechnical


Earth Environmental & Geotechnical: Spotlight on Services:

We are very well versed in writing coal mining risk assessments as part of planning submissions.

Unlike other companies offering an online service, our reports are written by Chartered Geologists, that are defined by the Coal authority as Competent Persons. We would urge potential clients to ask our competitors whether they employ Competent Persons otherwise they risk stalling the planning application process.

We have recently enhanced our Coal Mining Risk Assessment service in the Bristol area by acquisition of a very rare document published for the Department of Environment “Environmental Geology Study in the Bristol Area”. The document provides a summary of archived geological and mining records for the Bristol area and provides an unparalleled assessment of the prevailing mining regime.

As a result we are able to offer our clients an enhanced mining service delivered by Chartered Geologists experienced in the assessment of potentially unstable ground conditions.

NOW is the time to commission bat surveys.

Bat surveys can only be undertaken when bats are active (April – September). Where there is potential for a maternity roost, surveys must be undertaken between May and early August.

Any planning application involving demolition or change of use of buildings, tree/hedgerow removal or other changes that could affects bats or their habitats is likely to require a robust assessment of potential impacts to bats.

Avoid delays to your planning application; contact Earth Environmental & Geotechnical now to discuss your requirements. We provide expert advice and offer pragmatic solutions to enable development to proceed in accordance with planning policy and legislation.

Reptile surveys can only be undertaken when reptiles are active (February – October). Surveys timings depend on the species and the geographical location. For most sites, surveys will need to be undertaken between April and September.

Widespread reptile species comprise common lizard, slow worm, grass snake and adder. Reptiles use a variety of habitats including grassland, heathland and brownfield sites, especially those where there are south-facing slopes for basking.

Any planning application involving impacts to habitats which could support reptiles is likely to require a robust assessment of potential impacts to reptiles.
