Low Impact Class Licences


Natural England have recently confirmed that during 2016 (up until early December), they have registered 538 individual sites across 49 administrative counties under the Bat Low Impact Class Licence (BLICL).

Through Director and Registered Consultant Aidan Marsh, CSA have recently requested the registration of another site in Coventry, where demolition works are planned for January 2017.

Whilst the BLICL appears to be working well and uptake is quite high, rumour has it that the Great Crested Newt Low Impact Licence has been less successful, with relatively few sites being registered. Since a key aim for Natural England is to reduce the administrative burden of licensing, we wonder if changes may be around the corner for the GCN low impact licence?
