Planning consent and habitat designation
There are regulations which make it an offence to deliberately harm or cause significant disturbance to a protected species such as to damage or destroy a breeding site or resting place (e.g. bat roost or dormouse nest). Therefore, Glorious Woodlands will check, before any work is carried out, that no habitats will be harmed when creating your woodland.
Planning decisions and habitats
Glorious Woodlands will identify important habitats or vegetation communities, especially ones which are extensive in your area. These are factors that will be considered when designing your woodland. Significant areas may require distinct management plans considering the impact with the wider ecological context.
The potential for regeneration is important, Glorious Woodlands will assess the presence of seed sources, and the likely zones of natural regeneration in the vicinity of such sources. We encourage natural regeneration for establishing your woodland. This is part of enhancing your woodland’s natural processes which increases its success in the future.
Glorious Woodlands offers features such as open spaces, glades, rides, ponds and ecological enhancements which create important habitats for wildlife.
