Outcome

Short-term mitigation

To reduce / remove the identified negative impacts to protected wildlife, mitigation measures included limiting vegetation clearance to a suitable time of year, following an Ecological Method Statement. Suitable site access routes were established and the size of plant used on site limited to minimise disturbance. Maximum Working Areas were implemented, within which all materials and plant were stored to avoid sensitive habitats / areas where protected animals were likely to reside.

Long-term enhancements

These included the creation of 6 small wildlife hibernacula outside of the working area to provide alternative habitat for protected species. A habitat management plan was created to eradicate invasive plants and create valuable rough grassland habitats. Tree, hedge and shrub planting was incorporated into the scheme as well as a small wildlife pond. Simple enhancements for bats and birds, which included bird boxes and a simple fascia board design, were also included within the scheme. These measures all provide long-term features which protected wildlife known to the area can utilise, and demonstrated the environmental gains required by Planning in order to pass this scheme.
