Great Crested Newt Pilot Consultations


Woking Borough Council and Natural England are setting up a new pilot project to protect Greater Crested Newts (GCN) and would like to hear from you. 

The aim is to take a more proactive, Borough wide approach to protecting GCN and their habitat, focusing conservation on the GCN populations that will bring the greatest benefits to their overall population in the Borough.

The pilot also seeks to help streamline the delivery of development by easing this constraint on the layout and design of development land and minimising the risk of delay (and associated cost implications) through a streamlined GCN licensing process.


Full details of the project are available from Woking Borough Council.
