Busy start to spring

spring projects

Udall-Martin Associates have had an unprecedented start to the year, with a variety of interesting projects keeping us busy.

Work includes a 12km gas pipeline and 3km electricity cable in the Peak District National Park, EPS mitigation licensing for bats at a Grade II listed hotel in Leicestershire, Code for Sustainable Homes ecology reports for residential developments in the Forest of Dean and preliminary site appraisal for a large former hospital site in Birmingham which includes a woodland Local Wildlife Site.

The pipeline and cable works in the Peak District involved Extended Phase-1 habitat surveys, HSI assessment of ponds and now we are starting the full great crested newt surveys and working towards EPS mitigation licence applications, to ensure that these time sensitive works are carried out according to the clients tight schedule. We also have several other great crested newt and reptile projects in the pipeline.

Huge congratulations goes to Dwayne Martin this week, as after several years of intense training, both with consultancy projects, voluntary work and attending training courses and conferences, he has received his Natural England Class 2 survey licence. Well deserved!

Here’s to an exciting year as we continue to work with interesting clients and projects.
