PROTECTED SPECIES SURVEYS AND WILDLIFE MITIGATION EXPERTS.

So during your planning application or during developments, you may have been asked to provide a protected species survey by an architect, builder, or local planning authority.

But, what is a protected species?

The term ‘protected species’ refers to and wildlife or flora species that are protected by Law. Notably, The Wildlife and Countryside Act and the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act making it an offense to intentionally, or recklessly kill, injure, or take a protected species, or damage, destroy or obstruct access to structures or places used by protected species for shelter, breeding or protection.

Most commonly, Bats, Newts, Reptiles, and Nesting birds are most at risk from developments.

Construction inevitably involves disturbing existing sites and buildings, and this can impact the ecology. Where any work is undertaken which affects protected species or habitats, A protected species survey can assess an area for populations, habitats, and plant life. This allows local planning authorities to gather enough information to make a proper decision on whether the development would have an adverse effect on wildlife in the area.
