London Borough of Barnet, 2023. Friary Park: Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (L B Barnet)

Denis was commissioned by the London Borough of Barnet to carry out a preliminary ecological appraisal (PEA) and ground level bat roost assessment at Friary Park in the London Borough of Barnet on behalf of the borough.

Flood risk mitigation features were being considered within the park to alleviate the risk of flooding of neighbouring roads and residential properties as part of the Silk Stream Flood and Resilience Innovation (SSFRI) works.

The survey work included:

  • Describing the habitats recorded on site and associated fauna including field signs.

  • Identifying features which have the potential to support priority / protected species.

  • Evaluating ecological resources / features on site and placing these in the appropriate geographical context following standard CIEEM (2018) guidance on ecological impact assessment.

  • Advising on any additional (phase 2) ecological surveys which may be required to more fully inform current knowledge of the site’s ecology.

  • Identifying potential avoidance / mitigation measures which may be required concerning likely adverse impacts of works on priority habitats or protected or priority species.
