Ewhurst Ecological Efforts

A wealth of wildlife calls Firethorn Place home. The landscape in and around the development has been enhanced with mature planting and preservation measures have been implemented to safeguard local wildlife populations. These improvements are designed to integrate into the existing habitats at Firethorn Place and create a framework that ensures that local flora and fauna can thrive.


To protect the resident great crested newts and encourage invertebrates, a new pond will be created on the edge of the open space at Firethorn Place. This pond is designed to have an irregular shape and ledges as to provide a variety of depths and increase its value to local wildlife. It will retain at least 20cm of water throughout the year to ensure successful breeding by a number of species, though some drying of the pond can also potentially be beneficial for biodiversity. Fish will not be introduced to the pond as these predate upon great crested newts, particularly at their larval stage.

Enhanced Hedgerows

A new hedgerow, comprised of a variety of native species, is to be planted along the boundary of the site to create a wildlife corridor between two high value habitats for newts. This will also provide increased foraging and commuting habitat for bats as well as nesting areas for birds.


A variety of bird boxes have been installed across Firethorn Place on homes and in retained trees around the development, including specialist ‘sparrow terraces’ as well as boxes for other local species.


Trees with roosting features have been identified and preserved with enhancements (such as crown lifting) carried out where appropriate and bat boxes added. Some properties at Firethorn Place have integrated bat tubes to enhance roosting opportunities for local species including the Brown Long Eared Bat. Lighting reduction measures have been reviewed and approved by a licensed bat ecologist and are designed to ensure safe routes for foraging and travelling to and from the development.

Reptiles and Amphibians

To protect the local population of Great Crested Newts, a new pond and travel corridor will be created within the southern section of Firethorn Place. Habitat piles and hibernacula will be formed in the greenspace designed to provide shelter and security for native reptiles. These areas also provide a valuable environment for saproxylic invertebrates (deadwood dependent insects) and in turn, a food source for reptiles, amphibians as well as birds and mammals. To enable basking spots to remain open and accessible, grassland areas sown with wildflowers and scrubland will be cut back seasonally.
