Arcus are pleased to provide this guidance on protected species surveys and mitigations within their respective seasonal constraints throughout the year. Each protected species survey or mitigation requirement can only be completed at certain times of the year and these are further influenced by the weather and geographic location. By understanding these seasonal factors, constraints can be identified early within a project’s establishment and, therefore, be factored into your programme of works. This will reduce the risk of missing a protected species survey or mitigation period. Our team of professional Ecologists would be happy to assist further with any general project requirements or advice on protected species and their seasonal constraints.
