I am looking for advice on how to stop our local Bath and North East Somerset Council destroying the habitat of the Blue Carpenter Bee which lives in Bath on the proposed site of a new bus road to be built on an old railway line, please? I gather you have some experience in this field having lost an important population of this bee in your area.
The link below is to the Ecological impact report for the bus road and page 23 shows the list of invertebrates sampled and the potential impact on their populations of going ahead with the project. Ecological impact report
The link below is to this same Council's Biodiversity Action Plan which features the Blue Carpenter bee as a species to be protected.
What can we do? We have to complete our objections by the end of this week. Feel free to join in!
