Licences & Consents.

Most works require a licence and consent, be it on the coast or in a river, no matter whether you’re developing a new marina, replacing something existing, undertaking general maintenance or dredging. Once you have your licences, you’ll have to work to the conditions they set. To get consent you’ll also have to comply with a variety of UK and European environmental directives, and possibly go through public consultation.

We can help you obtain the necessary consents for your project and comply with the relevant legislation with reliable advice and consent strategies that are effective and appropriate to your project. We manage every phase of the licensing process, and provide the technical reports and inputs to support your applications.

When you have your licences and are ready to start construction or dredging, we can also report on monitoring and assessment works to discharge licence conditions after consent.

You can also take advantage of our strong working relationships with leading environmental consultants, hydrographic surveyors, and dredging contractors, allowing us to offer a full multidisciplinary team should you need it.
