In both areas no birds or other wildlife were trapped, injured or killed by the use of netting.</p><p> </p><p>Netting was used by Western Power Distribution (WPD) near Silverstone in relation to utility works. The netting was installed on 4th and 5th February 2019 and was removed on 2nd April. WPD employed a suitably experienced ecologist for guidance to erect the netting and to carry out inspections of the netting. Inspections of the netted area were carried out on 12th, 14th, 20th, 22nd and 27th Feb and 1st, 5th, 7th, 14th, 15th, 18th, 20th, 21st, 26th and 29th March 2019. The inspections were carried out at differing times of the day and typically lasted 2 hours.</p><p> </p><p>Secondly, netting was used by Fusion and National Grid near Quainton in relation to utility works. Hedge netting was installed on 6th March; the worksite was handed over from Fusion to National Grid on 4th April and National Grid confirmed they removed the netting on 15th April. Fusion employed a suitably experienced ecologist for guidance to erect and inspect the netting and National Grid employed a suitably experienced ecologist for monitoring and removal of the netting. Inspections of the netting were undertaken on the 7th, 15th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, March and the 2nd and 4th April, and then every couple of days until the netting was removed on 15th April.</p><p> </p>

This can result in either penalty points, legal proceedings being issued or a report being sent to the Traffic Commissioner (TC). After consideration of a report from the DVSA, the TC may take regulatory action for failure to comply with the undertaking of an operator’s licence. Disciplinary action can include suspension, curtailment or revocation of an operator licence.</p><p> </p><p>Drivers must conduct a daily walk round of their vehicle before starting a journey.
