Parnassus Ecology has specialist experience in ecological assessment work. Following his MSc study into the quality of ecological assessments in opencast coal environmental statements, Lindsay has regularly been involved with scoping work and subsequent ecological assessment work for developments, including strategic and site-based ecological assessments (appraisals), strategic policy production and assistance with grant applications. Most recently, this has involved working with ERM to review technical documents on the proposed HS2b route.
Lindsay gained in-depth knowledge of ecological assessment through his years working with a multitude of planning and development projects in South Wales and Central Scotland. This has included working on projects such as the Ravenscraig and Gartcosh former steel site redevelopments, Selar Farm OCCS in South Wales, Eurocentral, and a host of other mineral sites and large urban developments. In more recent years, Lindsay has also specialised in ecological evaluations of key heritage sites.
