Ecological Constraints That Can Affect Property & Development

Ecological Constraints That Can Affect Property & Development

The (RICS) and East Yorkshire Local Association is running a seminar to examine invasive plants and protected wildlife species which can affect property and its development.

The seminar in on Wednesday 17 July is one in a series of events to help those in the property sector to engage in professional training activity in the Humber Region.

The Group is open to fellow surveyors, architects, structural engineers and solicitors who would prefer to undertake their professional training as part of their working day rather than travelling to cities further afield.

The guest speaker is the Ecology Project Manager, Charlotte Sanderson from the Ecology Team at Delta-Simons Environmental Consultants Limited, who will be presenting on the subjects that affect property professionals and impinge on new or the continuing development of a property.

from Delaney Marling Partnership chartered building surveyors in who are part of a team that organises the local events explains:

“Invasive plants such as Giant Hogweed and Japanese Knotweed pose a huge problem not only because they can cause significant damage to a home or commercial building via the foundations, they can also cause delays and in some cases bring a deal to an end when buying or selling a property.”

“Quite rightly, there are many constraints surrounding the natural habitats of the wildlife living in our region and a growing list of protected species including newts, voles and bats mean that a property professional must be aware of the issues, regulations, potential costs and solutions associated when planning a new development or refurbishment to ensure nature is not disturbed.”

“Historically, the events have, and still are very Leeds centric and now that we have set up this series of events in the Humber, we are receiving around 40 attendees.”

“The committee is currently made up of mainly building surveyors and we are actively looking for new members to ensure we can get the correct training to maintain professional memberships.”

“If there are any general practice, quantity, rating or other form of surveyors who would like to be involved, we would like them to contact us direct. We also welcome introductions from training providers and those with properties of interest which may be used in our training activity.”
