About Us

ABN: 48 602 713 691

Founded in 2014, Ecoplanning is an established environmental consultancy providing services in the fields of ecology, environmental planning, biodiversity offsets, environmental management, impact assessment, and ecological monitoring to public and private sector clients.

We are firmly focused on delivering the best possible outcomes in a timely, cost-effective manner. Our experienced team of ecological and environmental specialists provide expert, professional advice with a friendly, hands-on approach.

Ecoplanning was founded by Lucas McKinnon, Director, Principal Ecologist and Accredited NSW Biodiversity Assessment Methodology (BAM) and Biobanking Assessor. Building on an accomplished career in ecology, planning and biodiversity offsets, Lucas’ vision was to bring together an expert team big enough to perform – yet small enough to deliver superior personal service.

Bruce Mullins, also a Director, Principal Ecologist and Accredited NSW BAM and Biobanking Assessor, joined Ecoplanning soon after, having worked as Manager of Ecology and Assessment for over 15 years at one of Australia’s peak nationwide ecological consultancies (including over six years working with Lucas).

Lucas and Bruce share a philosophy of hard work. They provide expert, solutions-focused advice to achieve the best outcomes for Ecoplanning’s clients and the environment. Ecoplanning has become a trusted adviser to our broad client base, highly sought after for our comprehensive knowledge and expertise in the fields of ecology, offsets and impact assessment.

Our senior staff all have more than 10 years’ industry experience and work closely with team members to ensure work is accurate and presented to the highest standard.

At Ecoplanning, we pride ourselves on the way we do business. We choose to look beyond the obvious to provide suggestions on potential scenarios, seek out practical solutions and facilitate outcomes based on expert knowledge.
