Badger Surveys

A badger survey may be required to support a planning application or when a badger sett is discovered during development works or vegetation clearance.

A badger survey is often required on sites where suitable habitat for sett building occurs on-site, within 25m of the site boundary or within 100m of any proposed blasting or pile-driving works.

These surveys can take place at any time of year, but optimal times are during spring and autumn when more evidence of use may be present.

If sets are identified further surveys may be required to identify additional setts in the area.

In the event that badger sets are found on-site, a Badger Mitigation Plan may be required to ensure legislative compliance. Our ecologists can advise on cost-effective solutions to minimise delays and unnecessary costs for your project.
