Protected species

Natural England has produced guidance

to help decide when to request or carry out protected species surveys to accompany a planning application. The survey requirements are based upon the habitats that are present on an application site and the likelihood of a species being present. The guidance should result in higher quality planning applications and fewer objections from Natural England (and subsequent associated delays to decision timetables) due to lack of survey information.
