Description

CONFIDENTIAL - INFORMATION ABOUT BATS ETC. Lapwings Consultants Ltd has been commissioned by Centrica, through RPS
Group, to undertake ecological surveys along the corridor of a proposed
electricity cable taking power from off-shore wind farms to a new sub-station
near Walpole St Andrew. The scope of the ecological surveys was to identify
the use made of the study area by badgers, otters, water voles, spined loach,
great crested newts, reptiles, foraging bats, the farmland breeding bird
community, breeding waders on the saltmarsh, and to determine if any
hedgerows are of nature conservation importance. The surveys were
undertaken in the period mid-May to mid-July and early-mid September 2006.
This series contains a report which presents the results of the surveys and makes an assessment of
nature conservation interest of the site for the groups concerned, and
examines potential impacts from, and mitigation for, the proposed cable
installation and sub-station construction. A separate document detailing features of importance for nature conservation in the Wash, and relevant designations, is also provided.  In addition, phase 1 habitat survey data is provided, showing details of habitat types and boundary features around the proposed onshore cable route development area.
