£329 Bat Survey Sedbergh – Cumbria and Yorkshire Dales
Sedbergh is one of the more picturesque towns in the North West, and as well as being surrounded by incredible scenery, it is also home to buildings that date back hundreds of years. Indeed, St Andrew’s Church in Sedbergh is thought to be nearly 900 years old. This means that many of the buildings in the town are potentially ideal breeding habitat for bats. Different species of bats will roost in different places depending on the time of year, and as well as living in trees and caves, have been known to make themselves at home in barns, spires and other buildings.
Bats are a protected species in the UK, and so if you are undertaking building work on a property and suspect that there may be bats present, you must complete a bat survey as part of your planning application. Failure to do so may result in your application being rejected, and attempting to disturb the bats without permission is not simply a planning enforcement matter, it can result in criminal prosecution.
