Ecological mitigation, near Hull

During 2013 we worked with Thomson Ecology to assist our client, a multi-disciplinary civil engineering and building contractor, with great crested newt (GCN) survey and mitigation works along a 14.5km cable route.

The cable route will take power from Westermost Rough offshore wind farm to a sub-station in Preston, near Hull.

Following the great crested newt surveys of nearly 50 ponds undertaken by Thomson Ecology, our works included:

  • Erection of over 6km of temporary amphibian fencing.
  • Installation of over 1100 pitfall traps and refugia.
  • The removal of hedgerows along the route prior to fence installation.
