A new national 3 year programme aims to reduce costs and time involved with sites that may be sensitive due to great crested newts. Funding has been secured to survey areas where newts are most prevalent with a view to mapping the potential impacts for development. This is intended to allow local conservation strategies to be developed that will involve enhancing or creating great crested newt habitats prior to any development taking place. The objective being to save developers time and money while also enhancing newt conservation.
