Little Packington Landfill Site

Client: SITA UK Ltd.

Little Packington Landfill Site is a large active site located in the West Midlands, taking domestic and commercial waste. Ecological constraints include a wetland SSSI not far from the site, and a great crested newt population. Argus Ecology have been involved in a range of ecological surveys and impact assessments to inform existing and future planned developments on the site, including amphibian, bat and habitat surveys. These included assessments of a proposed composting facility and proposed landfill extension, requiring a programme of great crested newt surveys with population class estimation. Planned mitigatiion measures include the construction of a significant group of new amphibian ponds, and the improvement of water supply to the SSSI, which has previously suffered due to road construction.
