badgersBadgers are protected under the Protection of Badgers Act 1992. This includes their sets. Badgers are a common problem for building projects. Lucky enough, we can do something about this, but Natural England has to grant a Licence if any destruction work is carried out close to a badger sett or for removal or badger set closures etc.
Sometimes a badger sett has to be removed for building work to be carried out, so qualification is likely to be granted in the months between July and November as this is outside their breeding season.  So if you have badgers on your land, please consider them before you plan any work.
