Ecosulis undertook the following works to assist Taylor Wimpey in the delivery of this project:

 

Taylor Wimpey Maintains Favourable Conservation Status

The following measures provided by Taylor Wimpey have ensured the favourable conservation status of species has been maintained:

  • Retention of badger access opportunities and provision of a wildlife corridor along the northern site boundary
  • Inclusion of native species within the landscaping scheme known to be favoured by foraging badgers and bats
  • The provision of bat roosting opportunities
  • Sensitive lighting to minimise any impacts on foraging and commuting bats

Post development monitoring confirms the use of bat boxes by bats on site and the success of the mitigation provided.
