Baker Consultants has been shortlisted for a CIEEM best practice award for Best Project Mitigation and we are looking forward to showcasing our work alongside industry colleagues at the CIEEM ceremony this month. The project has provided targeted mitigation in the form of specific habitat for the county scarce dingy skipper butterfly on a former colliery site in Nottinghamshire with support from Mike Slater (Warwickshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation Trust) on behalf of our client Welbeck Estates Ltd.
Most of our development projects take years to come to fruition as our clients often come to us pre-planning in order to assess their ecological constraints and involve ecology in their masterplanning. This award celebrates the results of the full suite of mitigation measures, restoration and follow-up monitoring typical of our long-term projects. This project has enabled us to implement methods developed by Butterfly Conservation Trust and prove their efficacy whilst significantly increasing the local abundance of dingy skipper.
