Do you have feedback for us?

Acorn have provided a good quality professional service in line with the scope of services agreed. We wouldn’t hesitate to consider them for future works.
Shane Jolly, Project Manager, Somerset County Council
I have worked with Acorn Ecology on many projects over the past 4 years. In that time I have found them to be a valued member of the project team, who work to the highest standards and produce first class advice and recommendations.
Colin Kiely, Director, Kiely Planning Limited
Our design focus is on creating buildings that complement the natural environment – working with the ecologists at Acorn enables us to do that. The team are friendly and expert in their field and their advice and input allows us to do a better job.
Chris Medland RIBA, Director, One-World Design Architects
Ravenslade commissioned Acorn for ecology work in conjunction with a sensitive site in the Surrey Green Belt where the Client is intending to lodge a planning application for a highly sustainable Eco Homes development. Acorn’s efficient approach and response to the survey work and clear professional reporting greatly assisted our due diligence process to assess the site development risks and constraints and will also aid our discussions with the Planning Authority and Natural England to ensure a satisfactory outcome to the pre app review.
Paul Bennett MRICS, Director, Ravenslade
Rayners are delighted to recommend Acorn Ecology. We found Acorn to be friendly, reliable, thorough and efficient.
Peter Riddy. Director, Rayners (Buildings) Limited
