Greengage undertook extensive baseline surveys and provided advice and support to help discharge a number of planning conditions relating to protected species at this farm in Kent. The site supported great crested newt, reptiles and number of bat roosts. Natural England European Protected Species Mitigation Licences were required to enable development.
An innovative Management Plan was developed to address a planning condition relating to bats which allowed large savings in time and money for the client. Greengage will go on to undertake further bat surveys and where necessary act as Ecological Clerk of Works under EPSM Licence to enable the farm building redevelopment.
