Mid-Cheshire College identified the former Winsford Gas Works site as ideal for their new Winsford campus. To support the planning application, my role included:
- Extended Phase 1 habitat survey including potential bat roost survey
- Japanese knotweed survey and advice
- Reptile survey
- NVC survey of grassland habitat
- Badger survey
- Preparation of final ecological appraisal report
The scheme was consented immediately and construction began on 2nd October 2008. The new campus opened in September 2010 and has facilities for over 400 students.
