The Hazel Dormouse is a European Protected Species (EPS), which means that its breeding sites and resting places are protected by law.
South-west England is a stronghold for this species and it is important to take into account its possible presence in development work. This may involve surveys, mitigation and habitat creation. Mark holds a license allowing disturbance of this species and is able to advise appropriately on surveys and mitigation. In some circumstances it may be necessary to apply for a EPS licence before works can take place.
