Hedgerow Netting

Hedgerow Netting, Hedge Removal and Biodiversity Mitigation.

There has been a considerable amount of press coverage regarding the subject of netting hedges to exclude birds during the nesting season. Whilst William Davis are content that our actions have entirely followed English Nature’s Standing Advice for development affecting birds, that we have always complied with both planning consents and the Countryside and Wildlife Act we have reviewed the use of netting to exclude birds prior to the nesting season with the stated intention of avoiding its use on all new developments or phases of development. Any hedge or hedgerow which had been netted to exclude birds will have been removed by Close of Business April 5th. Whilst we strive to incorporate existing ecological features within our developments whenever possible, on occasion we do have to remove habitat. Whenever this is the case William Davis ensure that we implement a landscape and habitat mitigation scheme which as a minimum provides the same amount of habitat as has been lost. Generally our schemes provide a biodiversity net gain.
