Landscape Advice Note: Wildlife Considerations on Development Sites

Front cover for Landscape Advice Note: Wildlife Considerations on Development Sites

By Alan Cathersides

When planning any new development on a historic site it is advisable to consider a number of wildlife and environmental issues that may affect the project at the earliest planning stage. Failure to do so may result in increased costs, delays and even prosecution.

Statutory protection will affect what can be done on a site within a protected area or if it is near a protected area and the proposed works might affect the protected area – this is a very important consideration if the proposed work could affect drainage, water tables, run-off or similar.

This Landscape Advice Note aims to outline these potential issues and how to accommodate them on site.
