Great crested newt consultation zones

Five kilometre GCN consultation zones have been created around records (post 1970) in order to  help consultants, developers and local planning authorities identify when they should consider the impacts of planning proposals on GCNs.

Please note that these consultation zones have no statutory status and are purely to guide where it might be reasonable to ask for a GCN assessment following national guidance.

Please find attached the great crested newt maps for Devon which we hope you will find useful.These zones will be mapped on your species map if you request a data search but often consultants wish to get some initial guidance as to whether it is worth them having a further data search.
