Save time, save money, save newts. Simple! Survey season passed you by? Eager to hear about our habitat creation?
It’s an innovative, modern approach to better facilitate development and protect great crested newts. Save time. Save money. Save newts!
But don’t take our word for it…
President of the Country Land and Business Association, Ross Murray, said:
“The licensing process is one of the most cited sources of frustration and cost for our members seeking to invest in building homes or business premises in the countryside. The harm is particularly felt by those pursuing small scale developments.”
“This initiative has the potential to transform habitat preservation for important species, while at the same time reducing costs and uncertainty for landowners considering development across England.”
