Work commenced with an initial site assessment undertaken in accordance Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) Guidelines for Preliminary Ecological Appraisal focusing on plant communities, habitats and United Kingdom and European protected and invasive species.
This initial assessment was combined with liaison with the local planning authority and county ecologist to define the scope of the Ecological Impact Assessment.
To meet the agreed scope of the EcIA additional detailed survey was required of the ancient woodland and for bats, Dormouse, ground flora, invasive species, reptiles, Otter and Water vole.
The EcIA work concluded that the project would have negligible negative impact on the immediate and local area habitat and species and with careful project procedure implementation would have a moderate beneficial impact due to the removal and treatment of several invasive species.
