Reptile Surveys
Common reptiles are afforded limited legal protection under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (as amended).

The purpose of this survey is to provide a high level of survey for common protected British reptile species in order to assist in demonstrating compliance with wildlife legislation and planning policy objectives. Namely for:

» Viviparous lizard (Zootaca (Lacerta) vivipara),
» Slow-worm (Anguis fragilis),
» Grass snake (Natrix natrix); and
» Adder (Vipera berus).

The key objectives of this survey are as follows:

» Assess the presence or likely absence of reptiles within the site and its local environs.
» If reptiles are found to be present on the site, give an indication of the population size of each species present.
» Provide recommendations for further ecological survey work and mitigation where assessed as necessary and suggest potential enhancements.
