“This consultation will give you the opportunity to give your views and any additional evidence you have around the following aspects of the 3 general licences: Species included, alternative methods of control, Their use on protected sites and licence conditions.

“The responses and evidence provided from this consultation will be considered alongside population statistics and conservation status of the listed species and all other relevant issues in order to shape the general licences going forward”.
