Aster Environmental Consultants





Aster Environmental Consultants Ltd. was formed in 2001 by Marie Louise Heffernan (CEnv, MIEEM) in response to an increasing demand for ecological and other environmental services in the West of Ireland.

The company offers services to public, private and community interests and our main catchment area is Galway and Mayo, though we have completed projects in nearly every county in Ireland from Donegal to Waterford.

We specialise in Appropriate Assessment of projects within, or close to, areas designated for the protection of nature. These areas are known as Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) and Special Protection Areas (SPA).

Aster have a good reputation with local authorities and government bodies as well as ecological and environmental bodies. Clients include Local Authorities, Department of the Environment, Third Level Institutes, energy companies, engineers and property development companies.
