Hole House Farm Gas Pipeline

Milner Ecology Ltd undertook ecological survey works and produced the Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) element of the Environmental Impact Assessment for the construction of a 3km high-pressure gas pipeline supplying the EDF gas storage facility near Warmingham, Cheshire on behalf of National Grid Plc/MWH Ltd.

The surveys included Phase 1 and NVC habitat assessments, breeding bird survey, great crested newt survey, water vole survey, otter survey and badger survey. Following the EcIA submission, a great crested newt licence was obtained from Natural England for the project to enable a capture and exclusion programme.
