Spalding Associates are an independent environmental consultancy.
We are a small company, established in 1997 and independent of any wildlife organization. We deliver clear, accurate and impartial advice on environmental planning for land use and development. We carry out ecological surveys on species and habitats, providing technical and scientific information in a clear way for decision makers, project managers and land managers. We aim to help our clients achieve fast, efficient and cost effective planning consents.
We work for a large range of clients, from international companies and statutory authorities to conservation organisations, local architects and individuals. We work on anything from small-scale barn conversions to large-scale road schemes, harbour developments and wind farms. We specialize in providing clerk of works for major projects such as bridge building, shipyard developments and wind farm construction. We provide scientific support for wildlife organisations and have a strong link with researchers at the University of Exeter.
We take our social responsibilities seriously and have a regular programme of paid work experience to help young people move into fully paid work; many of the young people who have worked for us in this way have gone on to other jobs in the industry, in Cornwall and elsewhere.
