About us

The Sustainable Development Consultancy (SDC) was founded in 1998 by Julian Whitehurst.  Julian is a Chartered Environmentalist and a full member of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), with over 20 years experience within the ecological consultancy sector.

A co-author of the English Nature publication ‘Great Crested Newt Mitigation Guidelines (2001)’, Julian has worked on numerous large-scale ecological impact mitigation projects including MIA Runway 2; housing developments (1000+ units); business parks; utility pipelines; roads and schools.  He also has extensive practical experience of the creation and management of wildlife habitats (particularly ponds), having successfully carried out such work on a variety of sites to SSSI and SAC designation level.

Working with a select team of experienced consultants and associates, SDC is able to provide a wide range of ecological services; offering sound, professional advice at very competitive rates.  Whilst having extensive experience of working on large-scale wildlife conservation projects, we also offer a friendly, proportionate, custom-made service for individual clients and smaller-scale projects.

Situated in Wistaston, Crewe, we are within easy reach of the motorway and rail networks, which enables us to operate throughout Northwest England, the North Midlands and North Wales, including: Cheshire East, Cheshire West, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Greater Manchester, Bury, Bolton, Warrington, Wirral, Stockport, Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire.
