What are priority protected species?

Certain species found in our countryside are protected from harm or disturbance by European and national law. The list covers hedgehogs and many other small mammals including red squirrels, wild birds, and invertebrates such as particular moths and bees.

All the species in this list are in and around the proposed development site.
