Why come to DTA Ecology?
DTA Ecology Ltd was established in April 2015 to continue the work of David Tyldesley and Associates (DTA). DTA had been a leading consultancy since 1983 but, following 31 years of professional practice, and after having firmly established the DTA brand, David Tyldesley FRTPI, FCIEEM, FRSA recently took the decision to step back from leading on consultancy and training work. Having worked with David at DTA for many years, and latterly being an Associate of DTA, Caroline Chapman PhD MCIEEM has set up ‘DTA Ecology Ltd’ to continue the work of DTA, with David Tyldesley maintaining an interest and taking on a more strategic role as an Adviser to DTA Ecology Ltd.
DTA Ecology Ltd is now the consultancy arm of the DTA brand. David and Caroline’s reputation in the field of the Habitats Regulations is firmly established by their work as co-authors of the Award Winning Habitats Regulations Assessment Handbook and accompanying Journal. They continue to work together as Co-Directors of DTA Publications, a separate company set up to publish and maintain the Handbook and Journal.
The DTA brand is associated with an exceptional reputation in the interpretation and practical application of the EU Wild Birds and Habitats Directives and other international wildlife conservation law. With a long and accomplished track record of completing often complex and demanding projects, on time and on budget, David Tyldesley & Associates was known for maintaining a consistent, highly respected, forefront position in cutting edge research and professional advisory services to a quality client base, so that central government, statutory agencies, local authorities and national conservation bodies, returned frequently to renew contracts and commission further work. DTA Ecology Ltd aims to build on this reputation and continue to provide the high quality service which potential clients have come to expect from the DTA brand. Whilst the majority of our work relates to the assessment of plans and projects under the Habitats Regulations, we also specialise in the provision of advice relating to the effects of air quality on designated conservation sites.
DTA Ecology looks for innovative, proportionate and cost effective solutions. The company aims to resolve conflict and ensure compliance in a wide range of case work, mostly relating to plans and projects potentially affecting nationally and internationally designated wildlife sites.
The Company operates throughout the UK and Ireland. Our office is in Wokingham, near Reading.
The Habitats Regulations Assessment Handbook is the one definitive source of guidance for the assessment of plans and projects under the UK Habitats Regulations
