About Us

Our story

Ecosupport Limited was established by our CEO and Principal Ecologist, Dean Swensson. He started Ecosupport after having worked for many other ecological consultancies as a subcontractor throughout the UK since 1998, dealing with a wide range of industries including housing, industry and infrastructure developments. Ecosupport strives to deliver a client-focused experience, always providing the absolute best and most pragmatic advice to our clients to successfully achieve planning permission for their project.

Ecosupport has built strong relationships with many clients who continue to use us for their ecology needs on all their projects and we frequently receive calls from new clients who have been recommended our services by their friends and family that were happy with their experience with us. It's this positive reputation from the work we do that has allowed us to grow into a larger company while still maintaining the close client-based relationships we value.

Our team

We have a hardworking close-knit team at Ecosupport with a complete range of skills and knowledge to help projects succeed. Our team is led by experienced and knowledgable Senior Ecologists, who have all worked with Ecosupport for several years and a team of brilliant and eager Assistant Ecologists with the energy and skills to undertake arrays of surveys at any time of day (or night!). Our Habitats team is hardworking and capable of carrying out any scale of the habitat creation, restoration or enhancements needed on sites to get your project up and running as quick as possible.
