Chatter box Habitats for great crested newts will be enhanced or created by Woking Borough Council prior to any development taking place. This will join up existing populations, making them healthier and more resilient.

A new organisational licence for the council will allow it to authorise operations that may affect great crested newts on development of sites. For more information see Natural England's website

New DNA testing scheme for Welsh terriers approved

A new DNA test for Primary Lens Luxation in the Welsh Terrier has been approved by the Kennel Club following consultation with breed clubs.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club secretary, said: "Primary Lens Luxation is an inherited eye condition which can be painful and lead to blindness, so we are pleased to be announcing this new DNA test for Welsh terriers.

"This will help breeders make informed decisions when it comes to breeding, enable potential puppy buyers to be aware of issues which could affect their chosen breed, and ultimately protect and maintain the health of the breed."
