Five more sessions to go before the end of June. Two of these have to be before mid-May, during the optimal season. However as Great crested newt has been confirmed the client will need to have a European Protected Species Licence (EPSL) to proceed. This is once the development planning application has been granted. This will allow the habitat to be replaced and enhanced ensuring the survival and ongoing use of the site in the future.
