Fairbridge Way, Burgess Hill

Ecology Solutions completed the required ecological services and developed the necessary mitigation strategies, principally in respect of Great Crested Newts, to support the planning application for a new residential development.  After securing the outline planning consent and addressing the conditions pertinent to ecology, Josef Saunders secured a Natural England EPS development licence in respect of Great Crested Newts.   

The mitigation strategy was based on using an off-site local wildlife reserve to accommodate the large population of newts that had colonised the settlement tanks within the site.  Across a period of three months more than one thousand Great Crested Newts (together with Smooth Newts, Palmate Newts and other amphibians) were translocated to a secured and enhanced receptor site to allow development works to commence.
