Badger gate installed in fence-lines which are cutting across an established badger run

You must install a self-closing, heavy timber flap-style gate with a solid timber door 40 mm thick, 250 mm high and 170 mm wide. The gate with heavy door allows badgers to continue to use the run once a fence has been erected but without allowing rabbits to pass through. Once installed, the gate must be maintained in good working order. This capital item covers the cost of any necessary re-siting following monitoring of badgers' use of the gate.
