Step 1: Habitat Feasibility

 

To assess the suitability of a site for habitat creation a feasibility stage would consider some or all of the following elements:

  • Site description / site history;
  • Consultation with statutory and non-statutory organisations;
  • Ecology;
  • Geology;
  • Soils and near surface sediments;
  • Topography;
  • Meteorology;
  • Hydrology; and,
  • Site infra-structure.

This stage provides information with respect to the ‘opportunities and constraints’ that the site offers with respect to the habitat creation / enhancement.  The study provides necessary information which can be used to inform input to Masterplanning exercises associated with the site development, planning applications, funding applications or the need for further works.
