European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) Licences

European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) Licences

Where European Protected Species are confirmed present, or potential for presence is found following a Phase 1 Assessment, it may be necessary to then undertake further surveys and apply for a European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) licence before works can commence.

We prepare Natural England EPSM licences. For all licence applications we include the design of mitigation strategies appropriate to the development and have extensive experience with ensuring on-site implementation and monitoring.
