Dormice Surveys

Dormouse Surveys

Dormice, their breeding sites and resting places are protected under the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). Under this legislation, it is an offence to capture, kill, injure or disturb a dormouse, or obstruct, damage or destroy their breeding or resting place. This means the dormice and their habitat (for example woodland and hedgerows) is protected if they are present.

The dormouse is also a Priority Species under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UK BAP), now adopted as a Species of Principal Importance in England under Section 41 of the NERC Act 2006.

Where Can Dormice Be Found?

Dormice have a distribution largely restricted to southern England, although scattered populations exist in the Midlands and the north as far as Cumbria and Northumberland. Re-introductions have also taken place in a number of counties including Cheshire and Yorkshire.

Dormouse Presence / Absence Surveys

Presence / absence surveys must be undertaken over the active season of this species to ensure that adequate survey has been undertaken. These surveys should be undertaken between April – September. The shortest time period for survey can be adopted if the survey is set up in April and visits are carried out each month from May until September.

European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) Licence

If dormice are present within an area, and any proposed works may impact on this species, then it may be necessary to obtain a European Protected Species Mitigation (EPSM) Licence prior to the start of the works.
