Good practice planning for invertebrates

Our aim is that when a planning decision is taken the impact of that development on rare and endangered invertebrates is considered, avoided and/or mitigated.

Lodge Hill SSSI

A Ministry of Defence site on the Hoo Peninsula in Kent has been earmarked for 5,000 houses. The site, Lodge Hill, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and maybe home to the Shrill carder bee, one of our rarest bumblebees.

The Horrid consequences of building

Within an old limestone quarry in Plymouth an unusual spider is lurking. It is so unique and rare that it has only ever been seen at two sites in the whole world.
