Great crested newt mitigation
Once great crested newt breeding or terrestrial habitat has been confirmed to be present on a development site it is necessary to implement appropriate mitigation. This often requires a development (EPS) licence from Natural England.
This course aims to provide information on mitigation techniques and the EPS licensing process, and will be of benefit to both those working in the ecological consultancy sector and land managers.
The course will be taught by our director Dr Lindsay Carrington MCIEEM. Lindsay has been involved in great crested newt mitigation since 2000, and has designed and implemented numerous mitigation schemes on a variety of developments, and has also worked alongside land managers to establish working practices that avoid adverse impacts on this species where it occurs on their land.
The course will be classroom based and will comprise a presentation which covers the topics listed below, and a workshop where attendees will assess case studies:
- Relevant legislation and licensing
- Survey requirements for EPS licensing
- Mitigation techniques
The course will be held near Corfe Castle
- The classroom based component of the course will be held at Rempstone Barns, Rempstone,Wareham, Dorset BH20 5JH
