Positive and Proactive Statement. In dealing with this application, the Council has worked with the applicant in the following ways: - seeking further information following receipt of the application. In such ways the Council has demonstrated a positive and proactive manner in seeking solutions to problems arising in relation to the planning application.
This permission does not authorise the applicant to carry out works within the publicly maintained highway since such works can only be carried out by the County Council’s Approved Contractor, Ringway Infrastructure Service who can be contacted by email worcestershirevehicle.crossing@ringway.co.uk. The applicant is solely responsible for all costs associated with construction of the access.
Buildings are frequently used as roosting sites by bats. Bats and their 'roost' sites are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017, the latter of which deems them a European Protected Species. It is a criminal offence to deliberately kill or injure a bat, to disturb or destroy a bat roost or to obstruct an entrance to a roost. If evidence of bats is found, work should stop immediately and Natural England must be contacted on 0845 6003078 for advice on the best way to proceed. All contractors working on site should be made aware of the advice and provided with the relevant contact details.
Work should avoid disturbance to nesting birds. Nesting birds are protected under the 1981 Wildlife and Countryside Act and the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000. The main nesting season lasts approximately from March to September, so work should take place outside these dates if at all possible. However, birds can nest at any time and the site including any buildings should ideally be checked for their presence immediately before work starts.
