Badgers

Badgers are social creatures living in family groups in underground structures called setts. Badgers and their setts are protected under the Protection of Badgers Act 1992. If a sett is found on or within 30m of a proposed area of development it is likely that an initial survey will be required to establish the presence of badgers. From this information a mitigation and management plan can be established. Further monitoring will be required???

Badger Surveys

Our badger specialists use a combination of walkover surveys, camera traps and territory mapping to build an accurate picture of the badger population and activity. This information is used to inform impact assessments and where necessary to obtain licences from Natural England.

How we can help

When required we can carry out Badger exclusions and sett destruction under licence from Natural England. We advise on fencing, badger tunnel design, artificial sett construction as well as planting and management schemes.

When

Badger surveys can be undertaken throughout the year, however mitigation measures and sett closures must be timed to avoid vulnerable times of year when badgers have dependent young below ground.
