North West Yorkshire Newt Ponds
Wildscapes are partnering with Natural England to create ponds across North West Yorkshire for the conservation of Great Crested Newts. We are offering up to £3,100 to create new ponds through EnTrade’s auction platform.
The ponds are required to compensate for the effects of development on Great Crested Newts. They are being created at a landscape scale to benefit the county’s newt population, and the ponds will be colonised naturally by amphibians and aquatic vegetation.
Providing your land falls within the target area shown on the map below and you can meet the criteria, we invite you to take part in the scheme by bidding to create from 2 to 6 ponds.
If your pond requires planning permission but we will arrange this for you and pay for it in full.
Please click register or view further requirements below.
The auction will run from 9th March to 26th March 2021. Successful applicants will have three months in which to create the new ponds.
We are on hand to support you in understanding the options we are looking for and tailoring them to your land - please get in contact with any questions or queries.
Please contact Wildscapes on 0114 303 5123 or email Nicola Livsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
