All bat species, along with their breeding and resting places (i.e. roosts) are protected by law. There are many activities that can have an impact on bats. For example:
Tree surgery to a mature tree
Re-pointing brickwork and cavity wall insulation
Renovating, converting or demolishing of buildings
The installation of new lighting either inside the roost or outside influencing the roost entrance
Please contact the Oakbank office to discuss any bat ecological survey work you may require.
