Summary: The site was located adjacent to a Local Natural Reserve in a suburban area of Birmingham. Wharton NIC undertook an ecological appraisal of the site and produced a habitat suitability plan with associated buffer distances from nearby ponds to demonstrate that the likely effect on great crested newts was negligible. Precautionary working measures were proposed and planning was subsequently granted.
