Testimonials


  • “JFA Ecology helped us out with some late notice surveys on a contentious element of our scheme. They reacted swiftly, and despite being brought onto the team late, rapidly assimilated the scope of works and delivered a high quality report that allowed us to progress our planning application. We are pleased to have them on our list of suppliers and look forward to working with them again, although hopefully at slightly longer notice”.

  • “JFA really took the time to talk to us and find out exactly what we needed, their communication was fantastic and we were very happy with the report that they produced for us”.

  • “We first worked with JFA Environmental Planning on a large residential project in Iwade, Kent. JFA were commissioned to assess the ecology on site. We are very impressed with their creative solutions to ensure that they achieved surveys on time and within budget. We were kept fully informed of the process and timescales throughout and this has continued to be my experience on subsequent projects. We since also instructed JFA to extend their services and work on a number of landscape plans for us and have received extremely high quality items of work. We now consider JFA to be our GO TO ecologist and am exceedingly pleased to recommend their services.”

  • “The integrated landscape and ecological approach that JFA Environmental Planning provided has enabled us to achieve planning permission at Bridge Nurseries. This is a site of ecological sensitivity which local residents hold the area dear to their hearts. Through the landscape and ecology scheme that JFA Environmental Planning have devised we will now not only deliver great homes but also a fantastic landscape setting rich in wildlife for the benefit of local residents.”

  • “We engaged JFA Environmental Planning on a project opening we had in Hampshire to undertake a Vegetation Survey. We choose this company because of their ability to deliver reports in time and on budget. After initial input from ourselves, they understood our requirements to deliver an exceptional report and exceeded our expectation on delivery. I’m happy to use JFA again on future projects, their ability to work to our high standards has impressed us no end.”

  • “I would definitely recommend JFA Environmental Planning. During construction at a site in Sussex, it was necessary to undertake some works within a sensitive habitat protected by a planning condition. They were quick to provide a method statement, site briefing and liaise with stakeholders to allow us to proceed without delay whilst we remained compliant with the planning condition.”

  • “The team at JFA Environmental Planning have provided expert and clear guidance, steering us through the bureaucracy of the Natural England licencing system. I have especially appreciated the hard work and determination that they demonstrated in designing a strategy to satisfy Natural England and help us achieve our tight works schedule.”

  • “Recently, on a refused planning application for a residential project, we were able to get the Council to withdraw an ecology related reason for refusal. The ecological assessment report specially prepared by JFA was of prime importance in achieving this. JFA also impressed with their skill in aiding clients through the planning process, and we would certainly recommend them for suitable projects to any of our clients.”

  • “To us at Delta Force, who spend our whole time in the countryside, the environment is what we have to offer and to protect.  JFA has helped us immeasurably in meeting our objectives through good, sensible, integrated planning and management advice. Their team is innovative, trustworthy and good value, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to any commercial client.”

  • “JFA, through their innovative and collaborative approach, provided solutions to our ecological constraints. Failure to do so could have resulted in costly delays to the project and undermined the viability of the whole project. Through JFA’s approach to resolving the ecological constraints we were able to stay on track with our development programme.”

  • “I have worked with JFA for over 10 years and their work has impressed me on multiple levels. They have a natural understanding of Client requirements, providing a personal service with a high degree of professionalism. Their support and expertise has been an important factor during the planning application process and as such I would highly recommend their services.”
