Acer Ecology is an experienced and expanding ecological consultancy, specialising in bat surveys. We undertake bat surveys in and around Ledbury, including the Malvern HillsRoss-on-Wye, Newent, Dymock, Eastnor, Welland, Bosbury, Staplow, Donnington, Fromes Hill, Cradley, Tewkesbury and Suckley.

If part of your planning application requires a bat survey, we can help to ensure that your development passes smoothly through this process.

The objective of a bat survey is to establish the presence / likely absence of the bat roosts within trees and buildings, to identify the activity of bats across the site and key commuting and foraging routes; and to recommend ecological mitigation and enhancement where required.

Bats and their roosts are fully protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017. Our ecologists are experienced in bat surveying, European Protected Species licensing, mitigation design and implementation and supervision of works.
