Great Crested Newt

One of our species which has suffered the worst in recent times is the Great Crested Newt. The Great Crested Newt used to prosper in rural Britain, however due to the demolition of ponds and loss of terrestrial habitats, it's numbers are now in decline. Thankfully, the GCR is now protected by law, with companies like ourselves doing our bit to save our amphibian friend.

Detailed information on the Great Crested Newt, as well as advise on carrying out surveys can be on the Natural England website.

Our in-house ecologist, with a contract fencing background, enables us to remove the necessity for an external ecologist to be on site throughout the process, thus increasing efficiency and productivity whilst reducing the daily cost to you. The primary service we provide is high-quality reptile fencing using our own dedicated, low-impact machinery, again reducing total costs. However, we are also able to extend our services to other forms of fencing. We have an extensive experience with boundary fencing such as post and rail, close board and stock for which we have won national recognition.
