As part of the project development, a range of surveys will be required across the scheme. These surveys include non-intrusive visual surveys, e.g. ecological, topographical and geophysical surveys, as well as intrusive ground investigation work to inform, guide and contribute to the development of the scheme design and impact assessment.

All landowners impacted by survey works, or site investigations will be contacted in advance to inform landowners of the intended works and dates and seek permission for land entry, where required.
