At UES, we produce detailed landscape and ecology management plans (LEMPs) based on our in-depth knowledge of your site. Our LEMPs include realistic management objectives, methods of implementation, work schedules, and the persons, resources, and monitoring, needed to achieve these objectives.

We work closely with the wider design team, such as landscape architects, hydrologists and engineers, to ensure an integrated approach to landscape and ecology management.

UES have produced LEMPs for small scale home owner projects, up to complex phased construction, public sector and aggregate projects.

Our LEMPs follow the British Standards Institution’s code of practice for planning and development (42020:2013, section D.4.5), which requires the following:

  • Description and evaluation of features to be managed
  • Ecological trends and constraints on site that might influence management
  • Aims and objectives of management
  • Appropriate management options for achieving aims and objectives
  • Prescriptions for management actions
  • Preparation of a work schedule (including an annual work plan capable of being rolled forward over a five-year period)
  • Details of the body or organisation responsible for implementation of the plan
  • Ongoing monitoring and remedial measures
  • Legal and funding mechanisms

Through careful planning and clear advice, we can help you to achieve your biodiversity objectives on site.
