Project Name: Colmworth Great Crested Newts
Location: Colmworth, Bedfordshire
Tasks: Presence and Absence Surveys for Great Crested Newts and Precautionary Methods of Works
Project Overview: Prime Environment undertook great crested newt surveys at two ponds in Colmworth for great crested newts. The surveys followed eDNA surveys by another consultant, and the results allowed us to produce a Precautionary Methods of Works which avoided the need for an expensive and lengthy licence application.
This is typical of the way we work – we put in time to create the best results for our clients and nature conservation, rather than automatically following ‘standard’ mitigation recommendations.
