Impacts on the Environment is a critical consideration and legal requirement when making planning applications for development and failure to address the ecological issues can certainly be costly with delays and possible legal implications.
The legislation underpinning these requirements is the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (UK) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2010 and along with their amendments they are fundamental to projects taking place whatever the size and location. The well being of species living in that area and the interaction and cohabitation with us is extremely important. Therefore, Initial baseline assessments are carried out and appropriate recommendations and ongoing liaison with developers ensures a measured, scientific approach that will satisfy local planning authorities.
CPP has for some time been involved in the process of providing solutions to those recommendations and in particular exclusion fencing for protected species. Within a developing site and environs, the exclusion fencing can be placed around natural pathways that small mammals and other species move, around ponds and close to newly built roads and tracks used for plant machinery and other vehicles that otherwise would not exist.
In addition to providing significant support to UK projects, CPP has recently been approached to provide exclusion fencing solutions for overseas projects in remote locations and for extreme temperature conditions. CPP continues to be committed to its ongoing support to our environment applying our Define, Develop and Deliver philosophy throughout.
