Take a look at some of the cases we have worked on in the past.
There are currently no closed megasites listed
The proposed works on the A11 is a real opportunity to deliver improvements to this road, and ensure that the wildlife of this special area is not harmed.
'Eco-towns' are supposed to be the bee's knees for green living and environmentally friendly design. That's good, but it doesn't make any sense to put 10,000 houses and all their associated infrastructure right next to one of England's finest wildlife sites.
A proposal to construct a dual carriageway raises concerns for internationally important numbers of whooper swans.
We welcomed the decision of Scottish ministers to refuse a 14-turbine windfarm at Stacain, Argyll and Bute due to unacceptable effects on golden eagle but in April 2010 this decision was overturned and the public inquiry was re-opened.
Thousands of land use planning decisions across the Midlands can help wildlife, or damage it, every year. We strive to influence all of these in a positive way by helping to develop strong policies for wildlife in the East Midlands Regional Plan, which then guide local decisions.
A housing development that could have spelt disaster for the unique, wonderful and protected wildlife of Talbot Heath has been turned down by the Government.
Black Law is an example of a large-scale windfarm that has delivered considerable habitat mitigation and enhancement.
We objected to proposals, which we considered to have an unacceptable impact on an important population of golden eagles and other breeding birds. We are pleased to report that the applicant, has withdrawn its application and dropped its interest in the site, citing predicted bird collision risk.
Plans for a golf course, resort and housing at Menie, Aberdeen have been consented although they will lead to very extensive damage to a protected sand dune system.
Although we objected to proposals, removing some turbines and providing data in a format which allows predicted impacts to be verified, has enabled us to drop our objection.
The windfarm planned for Waterhead Moor, in Ayrshire would have been so damaging to wildlife that we felt we must oppose it. The proposal involved more than 20 turbines right on top of an internationally important wildlife site for hen harriers.
The strategy will determine how flooding and water resources are managed for the next 100 years. We are disappointed that the Environment Agency (EA) has chosen an option which will not deliver the environmental benefits we were hoping for. We are now looking for ways to work more closely with EA and local land managers to see if there are other ways to achieve these benefits.
We are pleased to report that planning permission for two turbines that could have potentially impacted on the Firth of Forth has been refused.
We were initially worried that a proposed wind farm in Highland might affect breeding common scoters. Conditions attached to the granting of planning consent have dispelled our concerns.
