Many UK species of badger are in decline or in low abundance and are therefore afforded protective status. Should any of these species be impacted, further badger surveys will be required to assess site dynamics before works can proceed. The species that we survey for on a regular basis are listed below.
There are key times of the year when certain badger surveys can be completed, for further information please refer to our calendar planner.
Similarly, it is only possible to implement mitigation at certain times of the year, please refer to out mitigation calendars within the below species pages to assist your scheduling.
