Client: Whitworths Ltd


Aspect Ecology were initially asked to provide an ecological assessment of the Whitworths Ltd site to inform a planning application for the proposed re-development of the site for residential use. Given the location of the site, approximately 750m from the Nene Valley Gravel Pits proposed Special Protection Area (pSPA), further detailed assessment to inform a potential Appropriate Assessment of the proposals in relation to the pSPA was required by Natural England. In order to address this issue, Aspect carried out a detailed analysis of areas of publicly accessible open space within the local area, together with an assessment of the likely impacts of the proposed development on the SPA.
