Badger Surveys

Badgers are a common and widespread mammal and can be found throughout the UK. They can be found in both rural and urban locations.

Historically badgers have been persecuted by badger baiting which has led to their protection through the Protection of Badgers Act 1992. This protection also means developments are unable to destroy badger setts or disturb them within 30m. Badger surveys can be undertaken all year round however disturbance to setts under licence cannot occur between December and June inclusive.

BL Ecology can offer site surveys to assess the presence of badgers and if found offer a mitigation strategy to ensure legal compliance. This may involve site design or if unavoidable we can apply for a licence for sett closure and mitigation.

If you require a badger survey or a licence to disturb within 30m of a badger sett please contact BL Ecology on 01274 8168007 for advice and a quotation.
