Bat Survey Rochdale – £329 Bat Surveys in Rochdale
Rochdale is one of the more urbanised areas in its local region, and is home to many thousands of people. It’s also home to several species of bat, such as the brown long eared bat and the rarer, myotis species. Like many other forms of wildlife, bats adapt to survive, and so in addition to living in trees and caves have also made their homes in man-made buildings such as stables, barns, spires and even under bridges. They’re particularly fond of quiet, dark and warm places in which to roost, and the attic or loft of even quite modern buildings provide the perfect place for these adaptable little mammals.
Whilst the bats pose no threat, they can represent a planning nightmare for developers. As a protected species in the UK it’s illegal to remove or disturb them without the proper authorisation, and any attempt to do so may result in criminal prosecution. So do you know what to do if you find bats roosting in or around a building you’re looking to develop?
If you suspect or discover that bats have made your development site their home, you will need to submit a bat survey to support your planning application, to comply with the EU Habitats Directive and Wildlife and Countryside Act. Many Rochdale developers may however be unfamiliar with this area of legislation and planning policy, and so in such cases it is always a good idea to leave it with the experts.
