Extended Phase 1 Habitat Survey

Overview

The Hinckley & Bosworth Extended Phase 1 Habitat Study has been completed to inform the preparation of the Local Plan and supersedes the study published in 2014. The primary purpose of the study is to assess the suitability of sites to accommodate development within the borough and, in doing so, it will inform emerging planning policy in the protection and enhancement of biodiversity. The objectives of the study are to:

  • Determine the ecological value of each site, identifying features of ecological importance and features sensitive to potential impacts associated with residential development
  • Assess the suitability of sites potentially suitable for development, taking into account locally appropriate mitigation measures
  • Provide a strategic overview of locally appropriate restoration and enhancement measures which can deliver a net gain
