Don’t let protected species issues hold up your development.

2018 Bat Surveying Season is here, and Landscape Planning have been dealing with many findings of Bats in both usual and unusual places. If you suspect that Bats may be present on your site, we highly recommend that you get your surveys started as soon as possible.

Remember, if you have any structures or trees on your site, these could potentially be serving as Bat roosts.

Should a requirement for Bat Surveying be identified you may need to undertake a number of surveys over several seasons. The peak Bat Surveying season runs from MAY to SEPTEMBER each year and if you miss out on the relevant surveying window you may have to wait until the following year to complete your Bat Surveys.

BatsĀ and their roosts are protected by both UK and EU legislation. This legislation protects not only the animals themselves, but also their roosts throughout the year. Even when Bats are absent.

Do not let this hold up your future and current developments. Please give us a call to discuss your needs.
