We coordinated the ES and undertook ecological and landscape and visual assessments. Site constraints included being adjacent to an AONB and SSSI, veteran trees, rare invertebrates and breeding Barn Owls.
We developed impact avoidance and mitigation strategies with the developers, LPA and Natural England, with planning permission granted avoiding a public inquiry.
Throughout, our environmental design role has ensured ecological and landscape issues were fully addressed and we have maintained a monitoring role during construction and beyond.
Designs include open spaces network, play and sports pitches. There has been an improvement of the SSSI’s condition, the veteran trees remain healthy and Barn Owls successfully breeding in their new off-site habitat.
