Great Crested Newt occur throughout Shropshire, Herefordshire, Cheshire, Wales and the West Midlands and our experienced, licensed newt surveyors offer scoping surveys, HSI assessments and Great Crested Newt population size class surveys in both England and Wales, whether to inform proposed development, conservation management or as part of research commissions.
Specialist surveys for Great Crested Newt may be required where aquatic habitats in or near a site are suitable for breeding populations of Great Crested Newt. A Great Crested Newt scoping survey, which employs the Habitat Suitability Index system together with an in-depth understanding of Great Crested Newt habitat preferences, identifies those waterbodies that may require further survey.
Further surveys can then be conducted to confirm presence/absence, give an indication of likely population size, determine the impact of any plans or proposals, identify the need for licensing and devise robust impact avoidance and mitigation measures where these are necessary.
All our surveys are undertaken by experienced and licensed surveyors at highly competitive prices. Contact us today and we will be happy to help.
