New home for family of newts

18 January 2013

Charles Church East Midlands is used to creating enviable living spaces for its customers - but the property developer has gone above and beyond to give one Cambridgeshire family the perfect home - they just so happen to be great crested newts!

Since legally acquiring the land in Sawtry, Huntingdon, Charles Church has undertaken work to rehome the amphibians in a new habitat by constructing a series of ponds set within a landscaped area.
Newts, which have lizard-like bodies, can live permanently in water or live semi-aquatic – which means they only return to water once a year to breed.  
Adrian Evans, managing director for Charles Church East Midlands, said: “The Mulberries promises to be an exciting and stylish new development within Sawtry, which will provide a range of homes for the region’s first time buyers and growing families.  A high level of enquiries prior to the development’s launch shows us that buyers should act fast if they want to reserve their dream home.
“As with all of our developments, we follow the correct strategy to ensure that any wildlife around a construction site is adequately protected and we’re pleased to say that the family of newts are as happy as ever in their natural habitat.
“It’s just fortunate that making homes, regardless of species, is what we do best!”
