Water Vole Mitigation Techniques: A Questionnaire Research Project (ENRR415)

1,392 questionnaires were forwarded to a broad range of organisations likely to be involved with water vole mitigation. The collated results examined 290 replies, from which mitigation was then assessed, through telephone calls and some site visits. Mitigation is divided into Direct and Indirect impacts. The types of mitigation found were Exclusion, Habitat Creation and Enhancement, Alteration to Plans, Changes to Management, Relocation. Methodologies have been developed which provide both detailed and broad guidelines for future development and management works.
