We are a highly experienced ecological consultancy specialising in bat surveys based in Northumberland.
If you require a bat survey as part of a planning application we can help ensure that your development has a smooth passage through the planning process.
We work with a range of businesses and individuals, including homeowners and landlords developing their own property, as well as working within different industries, including house builders, engineers, planning consultants, architects, road and rail, energy, statutory bodies, schools and more. We are able to provide potential clients with a competitive quote tailored to their specific project.
Bat roosts are fully protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017.
The objective of the bat survey is to:
- Establish the presence/absence of bat roosts within trees and buildings which may be affected by your development.
- Identify the activity of bats across the site and key commuting foraging routes.
- Recommend ecological mitigation and enhancements where required.
We undertake surveys in Northumberland, including Rothbury, Alnwick, Morpeth, West Woodburn, Bellingham, Haydon Bridge, Hexham. We also offer our services in the Scottish Borders and Cumbria.
If you require a bat survey for your planning application, it can save you both time and money to identify ecological constraints early during the planning process. We are able to provide potential clients with a competitive quote tailored to their specific project.
