Bat Surveys

There are a whole host of reasons that a local authority might request a bat survey.

Invariably, barn conversions and alterations to an existing roof structure no matter how minor, will often trigger a requirement for a bat survey. Initially, this is often for a ‘scoping survey’ to consider whether more complete surveys are actually required. Often this initial survey is all that is required. Other times this is simply a precursor to Emergence Surveys. Please call to discuss your personal requirements. 

Ecological Surveys Ltd, offer Tree Surveys for Development Compliant to British Standard BS5837 – 2012.

If undertaken at the same time as an Ecological Appraisal this is not only more cost effective, but is often more ‘joined up’ too and can avoid conflicts between the Ecological and Aboricultural aspects of a Planning Proposal.
