Protected Species Mitigation at Dallimore Primary School, Derbyshire

protected species mitigation

Udall-Martin Associates completed an ecological assessment comprising an Extended Phase-1 habitat survey and desk study. We identified potential habitat for great crested newt and reptiles.

To enable preliminary site investigation works to proceed during the winter prior to the Phase-2 surveys being carried out we produced a Mitigation Method Statement detailing working methods and safe working practices to avoid adverse impacts to these species. This involved close liaison with the County Ecologist, Natural England (Derbyshire and Peal District local team) and Council engineers. We carried out on-site mitigation works involving mowing and strimming grassland areas to make the habitat unsuitable for the species.

Conducted for a local authority in 2010.
