Nature Conservation’s effect on your business
If you apply for any environment-related licence, the issuer will take into account your effect on species and habitats. This could be in the immediate vicinity of your intended activity or further afield depending on the nature of your application.
If your suggested activity could affect a designated conservation zone, your application may take more time. Your environmental regulator will get in touch with the relevant government conservation body.
Your environmental regulator will take into account the possible impacts of your proposed activity together with any existing permits, consents or exemptions. The total effect of several activities can be very damaging to species or habitats. If you or other companies in your area already hold licences, this could impact your consent application and any conditions that are attached to it.
Many animals and habitats are protected by law. The extent of protection varies from individual species to large areas of designated land. You or your activities may be affected by this legislation. So it is vital that you are aware of the animals that are protected and the landscape designations that exist.
There are plenty of sources of facts about nature conservation. Government bodies and non-governmental organisations can advise you on your requirements and responsibilities. We also provide lots of jobs across our conservation centres, including cleaning and catering staff.
