Great Crested Newt Mitigation Guidelines

This document has been prepared to assist those involved with changes in land-use where great crested newts are known or suspected to occur. This is dated guidance particularly hopefully to be replaced as SNH have recently commissioned review of GCN guidance.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Amphibians and Reptiles, produced by Stuart Otway, Jim Foster and Paul Edgar.
