As well as the relatively well known great crested newt, Britain has six other naturally occurring species of amphibian: the smooth newt, palmate newt, common toad, common frog, pool frog and natterjack toad.

Amphibians are found not just in rural areas but are prevalent in brown field sites, disused quarries and towns and cities. Where such habitats are involved, our knowledge and expertise will help to ensure that your development proceeds with minimum delay, cost-effectively and in full compliance with legal obligations
