Licensed ecological surveyors sought

We’ve written before about the fantastic campaign to build a community path between Eynsham and Botley. The proposed path would run alongside the B4044, providing a safer alternative to this busy road for cyclists and pedestrians. A group of determined residents have been working hard to make this project a reality and they’ve just received a funding boost which could mean that construction of the path starts as soon as this summer.

However, the campaign group have been advised that they need to carry out a detailed ecological survey of the area proposed for the path (the grass verge alongside the B4044) in order to find out whether or not there are any rare or protected species living in this area. They are urgently seeking one or two licensed, qualified ecological surveyors to carry out this work. The work has to be done in the spring so would have to be started this week or next week. (If it can’t be started very soon, this could delay the whole project by several months.)

If you are a qualified ecological surveyor, please ring Ian Leggett on 01865 862614. And if you know of someone who might fit the bill, please show them this blog post!
