Ecosulis were commissioned by DPDS consulting to undertake baseline ecological surveys of the Old Sarum Airfield, including an extended Phase 1 habitat survey, bats surveys and reptile surveys.

The proposals are currently being finalised but will include some development on the periphery of the site and for the relocation of the airstrip between 30-70 metres south of its current position. Ecosulis is currently undertaking further works looking at the cumulative impact of development of the site and the Old Sarum North allocation as well as the potential effects on the River Avon SSSI and SAC.

It is not considered that the habitats on site have potential to support species for which the SSSI/SAC is designated, however potential impacts such as potential for increased visitor numbers and hydrological changes will be assessed. The latter will input to the Water Resources and Drainage Assessment.
