Key Issues

JFA were commissioned by Crest Nicholson to provide Ecological and Landscape services for the residential development of land south of Rocky Lane, Haywards Heath to support a planning application.

Ecological surveys considered the habitats on site and the potential for European protected species and species of national interest, subsequently undertaking further surveys where appropriate.

A Landscape and visual assessment was carried out, providing information to produce a landscape proposal building on this and the results of the ecological surveys.

The project identified ecological opportunities of biodiversity and amenity benefit which were included within a development strategy submitted by the client.
