Oaklands, Caterham

A Berkeley Homes development consisting of 161 residential dwellings on a site in Caterham, Surrey. Greengage provided a variety of ecological services relating to the discharge of planning conditions, primarily involving the development of a Landscape and Ecology Management Plan (LEMP).

The LEMP included the protection of present Dormice and Reptile populations and the creation of a dedicated ecology area adjacent to the plots that benefitted badgers, bats and other flora and fauna.

The LEMP meant that the on and off site ecological value was maintained, whilst allowing the development plans to go ahead undisturbed.
