Development proposals - how DWT and you can help wildlife.
People and Wildlife
Working with planning authorities such as District and Borough Councils is one of Dorset Wildlife Trust's important activities. You can read our new report here entitled: Homes for People and Wildlife - How to Build Housing in a Nature Friendly Way.
In addition, we review over 200 planning cases a year, ranging from the small-scale such as mobile phone masts to district-wide development plans. We restrict our strongest objections to where the threat to wildlife is significant in the context of the whole of Dorset.
We also talk with planners and developers to try to gain the best outcome for wildlife.
DWT believes that development does not need to damage wildlife, but all too often the impacts on wildlife get ignored or forgotten.
DWT does not have the time or resources to review every planning application, but we have been working with others to develop better ways of considering wildlife in all planning cases. The Dorset Bat and Biodiversity protocols are now operating successfully see http://www.dorsetforyou.com/401489.
