Our role: The site lies within the White horse Business Park area, most of which has already been developed, and comprises rough grassland, five ponds and a bordering ditch. ecosulis ltd were commissioned to assist in the consideration of great crested newts within various development proposals.

ecosulis ltd has been involved with the ecological aspects of the site, undertaking surveys and great crested newt monitoring of the site and immediate surroundings since 2003. Small populations of great crested newts were identified in four of the five ponds on site during the monitoring programme.

ecosulis ltd has held numerous licences for developments within the business park site and has implemented associated mitigation strategies and long-term monitoring in order to facilitate development whilst maintaining the favourable conservation status of great crested newts in the area.

Works undertaken and on-going include: Habitat creation and enhancement; installation of temporary and permanent exclusion fencing; capture and relocation of great crested newt from the development footprint into suitable receptor areas using drift fencing and pitfall traps; and long-term population monitoring.
