ECoW (Ecological Clerk of Works) is a fairly new addition to the library of planning acronyms. Larger wind farm projects often have an ECoW. I’ve had very positive feedback from a wind farm developer about the contribution of the ECoW.
And there’s now AEECoW, which is a body developed to raise professional standards amongst those providing Env/ECoW services whilst promoting Env/ECoWs as valuable members of site development teams. There’s MRTPI and MRICS – could there be MAEECoW?
