Overview

It is a legal requirement to control plant species listed under Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). Invasive species frequently found on development sites include Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam and giant hogweed. An invasive species survey aims to identify the presence of Schedule 9 species within a site and provide pragmatic control advice.
