If you require advice on your planning application affecting ecology, biodiversity, or landscape then please get in touch via enquiries@lepusconsulting.com.

If you are currently preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan or Development Plan Document, or other document for which an SEA may be required, we provide planning and strategic environmental assessment support and would be more than happy to discuss your requirements.


"Lepus have been assisting APS in the preparation of a large number of Neighbourhood Plans providing expert advice and evidence in relation to Screening Opinions, Scoping Reports and Strategic Environmental Assessments.

In an increasingly complex area of Neighbourhood Planning which is vulnerable to challenge, the support Lepus provides is both reassuring and comforting for communities."
