Ecological Baseline Surveys and ES Chapter


In respect of a planning application for an extension to the existing quarry, a Review of Old Minerals Permission and quarry restoration Keystone were instructed to undertake ecological surveys including: Extended Phase I Habitat Survey, Great Crested Newt Habitat Suitability Assessment, Dormouse Survey, Badger Survey, Preliminary Bat and Barn Owl Survey, Bat Activity and Emergence Surveys, Otter, Water Vole and White-clawed Crayfish Surveys to establish a current baseline. Using this baseline information we produced the ecology chapter of the ES, carrying out an Ecological Impact Assessment in accordance with the current guidelines produced by The Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management. Ecological input was also given to the design of a restoration strategy.
