Do you need practical professional advice surrounding bats in buildings, trees or other potential habitats?
Do your plans for development include habitats where bats may be present?
What we can do for you:
The presence of bats can frequently be an issue that affects development, but timely expert help can ensure that the needs of bats are accommodated by development proposals; minimising the risk of unforeseen delays and ensuring compliance with legislation and planning policy.
EPR has high expertise in bat ecology, and our experienced team of licensed bat ecologists can survey buildings and all other structures, and evaluate foraging and roosting habitats for bats and hibernation sites. We also have an excellent track record of successfully designing mitigation and obtaining licences from Natural England to permit works to proceed. We have considerable experience, alongside our sister company The Natural Greenspace Company, in implementing bat mitigation strategies.
EPR staff are experienced at undertaking more detailed and larger (landscape-scale) bat surveys for research projects and Environmental Impact Assessments. We also have the experience to use more in depth assessment techniques when required such as radio telemetry and design of more complex mitigation where this is required.
