Welcome to LCECO

Lindsay Carrington Ecological Services Ltd is an independent ecological consultancy based in Dorset. The practice was established in 2002 on a sound conservation and commercial consultancy basis. Since then, our company has expanded and our expert ecologists have the skills and experience to carry out a complete range of ecological projects. The expertise of our ecologists is built on an ongoing involvement in ecological research and voluntary survey work.

Much of our work involves a wide range of development projects and over time, our company has built up a reputation for reliable and cost-effective work. Provision of consistent and high quality advice is important to us and our clients return time after time to reuse our ecological services.

Our professional staff are trained to a high level of expertise and are members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology & Environmental Management (CIEEM) as well as holding a number of Natural England and Natural Resources Wales protected species survey and mitigation licenses.
