  Great crested newt mitigation works at a leisure park in Filey, North Yorkshire for Bourne Leisure

Looking from the east coast of Yorkshire from Primrose Valley, Filey

  Looking east from Primrose Valley Leisure Park, Filey, North Yorkshire

Bourne Leisure were looking to extend their leisure park at Primrose Valley, Filey in North Yorkshire which has a nationally significant number of great crested newts on site

As part of the mitigation works, JPR have enhanced the natural mitigation area.

Extensive scrub clearance was necessary to return areas to grassland management.

Existing, over-crowded ponds clogged with vegetation and silt were dredged and opened up.

Two new ponds of around 200 square metres each were created on site.

Drift fencing was installed so that the ecologists, Tyler Grange, could carry out the translocation of the great crested newts in order for the development works to start. JPR also created great crested newt hibernacula.

It was immensely satisfying to help with the project development and improve the environment. It was also great to be involved in so many aspects of the project from start to finish.
