Ecological Feasibility Survey for Proposed Pipeline Routes

Dalcour Maclaren

Keystone Ecology carried out an ecological feasibility study of 3 proposed water pipeline routes near Takeley, Essex.  Each route was 6.5km in length.

The aims and objectives of the feasibility study were:

  • identify features of ecological interest and undertake a basic search of habitats and assess any evidence of use, or potential use, by scheduled species e.g. designated sites, BAP Priority Habitats or protected species
  • assist in the selection of a route which would minimise ecological impacts which would otherwise occur
  • identify the ecological constraints associated with the route selected following the scoping surveys.
