Mitigation calendar

Habitats that support protected species carry extra legislative weight and require temporal planning to minimise risk and ensure that project goals are met alongside legal obligations. Legislative obligations can be met by using a contractor, who understands timing requirements, is experienced in sensitive operations and has a proven track record.
