Newt Fencing in Worcestershire

Do you need a quote for great crested newt fencing?

Different options for newt fencing are clearly explained in this short video.

 

JPR Environmental has installed 1000s of metres of newt fencing and slow worm fencing in and around Gloucestershire and the rest of the UK.

Newt fencing is installed in order to isolate sites for surveying and development. 

We have more than 15 years’ experience with temporary, semi-permanent and permanent fencing.

Do you need to fulfill planning conditions before you can start your development?

Our newt fencing services cover all stages of habitat isolation projects.  First of all, we can mark out the fenceline in addition to installing the newt fencing and newt traps.  Furthermore, we will undertake ongoing newt fence maintenance and finally, we will undertake the removal of newt fencing.

We install newt fencing to isolate either large or small sites in addition to those with restricted access.

Are you an ecologist or developer who needs to install newt fencing?

Our staff are qualified and experienced so we have been instructed by both ecologists and developers to deal with protected species mitigation work.  We can work with an ecological clerk of works or our staff can be trusted on site to deal with any protected species issues that may arise.

Do you want a quote for or advice on newt or slow worm exclusion fencing?  For advice or a quote, please Contact us.

We principally employ a compact trencher on newt fence installations. As a result, this minimises the potential impact on resident great crested newt and slow worm populations.  While we use a mini digger on sites with rougher ground when appropriate, we can also dig lengths manually where there is a particular sensitivity.

 
Types of Newt Fencing

JPR Environmental offers the full range of fencing specifications from temporary sheet and post to semi-permanent 1mm plastic panels and sheet and permanent HDPE planels.  We can supply and install all brands of amphibian and reptile fencing according to our clients’ requirements. We can also supply and install a lifetime guaranteed, galvanised steel system.

We regularly monitor our competitors’ prices and can say with confidence that we are highly competitive when quoting for projects in the UK.

Unlike some fencing suppliers who also install, we are not tied to a specific system and can therefore offer the best solution at the most reasonable cost.

About Worcestershire

The county borders Herefordshire to the west, Shropshire to the north-west, Staffordshire only just to the north, West Midlands to the north and north-east, Warwickshire to the east and Gloucestershire to the south. The western border with Herefordshire includes a stretch along the top of the Malvern Hills. At the southern border with Gloucestershire, Worcestershire meets the northern edge of the Cotswolds. Two major rivers flow through the county: the Severn and the Avon.

The geographical area now known as Worcestershire was first populated at least 700,000 years ago. The area became predominantly agricultural in the Bronze Age, leading to population growth and more evidence of settlement. By the Iron Age, hill forts dominated the landscape. Settlement of these swiftly ended with the Roman occupation of Britain.

It is claimed that the county was the inspiration for the Shire, a region of J. R. R. Tolkien’s fictional Middle-earth, described in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien was thought to have named Bilbo Baggins’ house, Bag End, after his Aunt Jane’s Worcestershire farm. 

Fruit farming and the cultivation of hops were traditional agricultural activities in much of the county. This declined during the latter half of the 20th century with the exception of the area around the Vale of Evesham, where orchards are still worked on a commercial scale. Worcester City’s coat of arms includes three black pears, representing a now rare local pear variety, the Worcester Black Pear.  The apple variety known as Worcester Pearmain originates from Worcestershire, and the Pershore plum comes from the small Worcestershire town of that name, and is widely grown in that area.

Worcestershire is also famous for a number of its non-agricultural products. The original Worcestershire sauce, a savoury condiment made by Lea and Perrins, is made in Worcester, and the now-closed Royal Porcelain works was based in the city.
