Preliminary Ecological Appraisal

Parc y Dderwen, Neath Port Talbot

A Preliminary Ecological Appraisal was conducted prior to a residential development on a former Victorian school site in Pontardawe, which identified the need for further badger, bat, and reptile surveys.

The presence of stands of invasive Japanese Knotweed, nesting birds, and reptiles presented ecological constraints at the site.  A detailed reptile mitigation strategy was devised including capture and translocation to a receptor site.
