Ecology support services, Stockley Junction

The brief

Following an initial request to undertake an ecological watching brief, we were involved on this site for four years. We were called in to advise on a range of different ecology issues.

What we did

  • Call-outs at short notice for surveys and watching briefs to allow the works programme to continue without delay
  • Advice on reptiles, newts, breeding birds, and bats to allow scrub and tree removal
  • Advice on closing a badger sett
  • Population monitoring of previously translocated newts and reptiles to satisfy licence requirements
  • Fish rescue before ponds could be infilled
  • Identification and specification of approach to dealing with Japanese knotweed
  • Arranged for archaeological input on several occasions

The outcome

All works were delivered to tight deadlines and to the client’s satisfaction.
