The highest level of statutory protection for a select number of species is covered by the Habitat Regulations.  Please refer to these documents for further details if carrying out work in habitats that support any of the listed species.  If you are unsure whether the above legislation affects any work operations you wish to undertake, please don't hesitate to contact us for advice - you may need to employ a specialist ecologist to carry out a protected species survey.
