Great Crested Newts are a protected species in the UK. The newts and their eggs, breeding sites and resting places are protected by law. We can protect these sites with various types of newt fencing.
Licences are available from Natural England for essential works around newt habitats and where possible, these works must be carried out at a time when the newts are less active.
Cheshire has one of the strongest newt populations and as such there are strict regulations to preserve their wellbeing.
Newt fencing is installed after an ecological survey that shows the presence, or possibility of the presence of Great Crested Newts around new construction sites such as new housing estates, quarries or roads/ motorways.
The materials used for newt fencing depend on individual circumstances with permanent and semi-permanent options available. Stockdale Fencing are specialists in the area of newt fencing with many years of experience, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
