It is a condition of your licence to provide Natural England with a report detailing action taken under this licence.

Use this form to report your actions under these mitigation licences:

  • bats
  • natterjack toads
  • otters
  • sand lizards and smooth snakes
  • general European protected species mitigation licence

There are separate report forms for the following species – you should use these instead:

  • great crested newts
  • hazel dormice

You need to complete the report no later than 2 weeks after your licence expires, even if you’ve taken no action. There may be times when you’ll be asked to submit interim reports as well.
