AN ecological survey has been carried out in Melbourn to protect a group of lizards.
The common lizards have been living at 20 different locations in an area of land which is being redeveloped near to Dolphin Way.
Part of the land will be developed with five homes with Melbourn Parish Council taking ownership of the rest of the land and turning it into a parkside amenity.
The parish council encouraged the survey - undertaken by Csa Environmental Planning - to protect the reptiles under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Cllr Bob Trimble said: "When we take over the site we will want to maintain the area and introduce walking areas. We have known of lizards on the site, but I was surprised by the numbers."
The lizards will be moved to three fenced-off areas on the site, where they can live undisturbed.
