What Our Clients Say

​​​"Yarranlea Solar Pty Ltd engaged Ecology and Heritage Partners to complete an ecological assessment for the Yarranlea Solar Farm, a 100 megawatt (MW) facility proposed on the Darling Downs, west of Toowoomba. The site had significant ecological constraints in the form of mapped regulated vegetation and a population of a threatened grass species that required ground-truthing and assessment. It was important to us to maximise the area of land available for installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels to gain peak power output, whilst fully complying with all relevant environmental legislation.

"(Ecology and Heritage Partners) provided sound, practical advice and outlined the options available to progress the development. (They) consulted with us frequently whilst navigating through the various ecological permits and approvals required to ensure that we were aware of the progress of applications and when a decision could be expected. Based on (their) work, we were able to increase the size of the developable land by approximately one hectare and considering reduced shading impacts this resulted in a 1.5 MW increase in power output or enough power to supply an additional 650 average Queensland homes. We thank the Ecology and Heritage Partners’ Queensland team for their professionalism and assistance on this project."

While ours was a relatively small initial project to assist in the identification of suitable native vegetation offsets areas, it is deemed very important to how Council moves forward with providing offsets for not only its own planning permit offset requirements, but to possibly assist private landowners and developers in the future. Ecology and Heritage Partners were very helpful in guiding staff through the complex subject and providing good advice on how to proceed. It is likely that there will be ongoing work with Ecology and Heritage Partners for the setting aside of various areas for native vegetation offsets."

"Ecology and Heritage Partners are the perfect blend of technical skill and pragmatism without needing to compromise. They have an excellent and well won reputation with authorities, which makes processes run very smoothly."

David Parsons, Parsons Property Development Management

"Our priority when selecting an ecological consultant for our post-construction Bat and Avifauna Monitoring Program at the Mt Mercer Wind Farm, was to engage an organisation that could deliver the necessary expertise while respecting our participating landowners concerns around impacts to their farming operations. While we had never used Ecology and Heritage Partners before, it became clear through a Request for Proposal (RFP) and landowner approval process that they were willing to go above and beyond to accommodate the various needs of all parties while still remaining competitive on price.

"Throughout the two year monitoring program, Ecology and Heritage Partners continued to work with us in a flexible manner to successfully deliver the full scope of works to budget despite several minor client enforced timetable and work method variations. This included the seamless management of sub-contractors throughout this period. Led by Andrew Taylor, the project team incorporated the necessary expertise, experience and management skills required to undertake such a large project.

"We look forward to the opportunity to work with Ecology and Heritage Partners again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them for any similar renewable energy projects."
