Do you need a quote for great crested newt fencing?
Different options for newt fencing are clearly explained in this short video.
Types of Newt Fencing
JPR Environmental offers the full range of fencing specifications from temporary sheet and post to semi-permanent 1mm plastic panels and sheet and permanent HDPE planels. We can supply and install all brands of amphibian and reptile fencing according to our clients’ requirements. We can also supply and install a lifetime guaranteed, galvanised steel system.
We regularly monitor our competitors’ prices and can say with confidence that we are highly competitive when quoting for projects in the UK.
Unlike some fencing suppliers who also install, we are not tied to a specific system and can therefore offer the best solution at the most reasonable cost.
Do you need to fulfill planning conditions before you can start your development?
Japanese Knotweed is widely recognised as one of the most prolific species to be introduced into the UK and as such, requires specialist methods to control it. These methods include a range of options from herbicide application to root-proof membranes and excavation. It can take a number of years to fully eradicate and any soil involved with Japanese Knotweed is classed as controlled waste and if moved, must be done so under tight controls to avoid spreading the problem to other sites. People who do not manage Japanese Knotweed on their properties can face prosecution.
Are you an ecologist or developer who needs to install newt fencing?
Our staff are qualified and experienced so we have been instructed by both ecologists and developers to deal with protected species mitigation work. We can work with an ecological clerk of works or our staff can be trusted on site to deal with any protected species issues that may arise. Do you want a quote for or advice on newt or slow worm exclusion fencing? For advice or a quote, please Contact us. We principally employ a compact trencher on newt fence installations. As a result, this minimises the potential impact on resident great crested newt and slow worm populations. While we use a mini digger on sites with rougher ground when appropriate, we can also dig lengths manually where there is a particular sensitivity.
Why is it necessary?
As great crested newts and their habitat are protected by law, it might be necessary for newt fencing to be installed on a site in order to fulfil planning conditions. The fencing will be installed to the specifications of a licence issued by Natural England (or another statutory body in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland). The specifications would normally be approved by an ecologist. Using experienced newt fence installers means that you can be confident that the fencing will be suitable to adhere to the licence requirements.
What maintenance is involved?
The licence to install the newt fence will also specify how long it needs to be in place. The fence will need to be newt-proof for the time specified on the licence and so will need to be checked on a regular basis and maintained if necessary including repairing and replacing sections. Fences are sometimes damaged by construction site machinery and by the general public.
