Ormskirk Hospital

Appletons were involved in preparing a number of pre-application surveys including Phase 1 Habitat Survey, bat survey and tree survey for the redevelopment of a redundant section of Ormskirk Hospital for residential use. The commission evolved to include the preparation of conceptual masterplan / development layout and the design & access statement for the planning application to West Lancashire District Council. Since bat roosts were identified on the site it was necessary to fully demonstrate that the three tests for the issue of a Natural England Licence had been carried out and that regard had been taken of the Habitats Directive and Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulation 2010.
