A CAMPAIGN group trying to save hedgehogs from catastrophic decline provides guides for housing developers to make new homes friendlier to the prickly mammals.

Since the millennium a third of hedgehogs have been lost from towns and cities due to a combination of climate change, habitat loss and increased road collisions.

Hedgehog Street, a joint project from the People’s Trust for Endangered Species and the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, have launched two free guides for housing developers and contractors with guidance on how to help hedgehogs on development sites.

The guides provide a wealth of advice and guidance on how to build Hedgehog Highways, manage the mammals and how to manage the land more sensitively.

Across the UK, 500,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org calling for Hedgehog Highways to be installed in all new developments to tackle the problem.
