Bolton Percy European Protected Species Licensing

Bolton Percy European Protected Species Licensing

Through a proactive approach from the start of the project, SYSTRA identified the potential for both great crested newts and bats during the early design stages of a bridge reconstruction. European Protected Species licences were secured from the statutory authority, Natural England, with subsequent licensed mitigation effectively implemented to maintain the existing, unyielding, construction programme.

  • Proactive and pragmatic approach to provide support to planning, enabling and construction stages ensured client’s interests were prioritised outside of SYSTRA’s remit.
  • Fixed construction programme, challenging seasonal restrictions to mitigation requirements.
  • Effective completion of ecological survey work, outside of the standard methods, under challenging working constraints.
  • Engaged directly with Natural England for licensing solutions and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for mitigation implementation.
  • Successful first time application for licences and reapplications to maintain construction programme.
  • Liaison with the multidiscipline project teams to ensure ecological constraints are considered in design.
  • Continual support to Client and Principle Contractors Project Team in a manner that helped the implementation of the project.
  • Construction commenced to programme without being impeded by ecological licensing concerns.
