Habitat enhancement - Myrtle Drive

Slow worm habitat isolation and site clearance

Ecological Contracting Project

Client: EG Carter Development Ltd

April 2008-ongoing


Project outline

An old allotment site had been earmarked for a small social housing development in Shirehampton
on the outskirts of Bristol. The site was found to contain a significant population of slow worms.
The client needed to isolate the site and remove the slow worms before development.The site had
also been left pretty much untouched for a number of years so there was a significant amount of
scrub and undergrowth to clear to encourage the slow worms off the site and prevent
birds nesting.


Services Provided

In May 2008 JPR Environmental undertook an ecologically sensitive programmer of site clearance
to remove any potential trees and large shrubs that birds may nest in. We then installed about 400m metres of standard reptile exclusion fencing which allowed the ecologist to trap off the area. We are undertaking regular maintenance of the fence including strimming the outside line to clear
undergrowth and discourage the reptiles from returning.

JPR Environmental also installed 360m of Heras fencing around the site to both protect the slow
worm fence from damage by machines working on the site and also provide security for the site.
