Themes: Building and construction
A key source of information to assist with planning and integration of biodiversity into development is the web portal Biodiversity Planning Toolkit, developed by the Association of Local Government Ecologists. The Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management has also developed technical guidance for ecological survey and impact assessment that lay down standards that are expected in this area. Please also check out the Restoration Library Pages on Bats, Badgers, Amphibians and Reptiles and Birds for group and species specific guidance and the page on Roads and transport corridors for information on habitat mitigation, creation and management for transport infrastructure.
