Bat Survey Southport £329 – Southport Bat Surveying

Southport was founded in its current form in 1792, and experienced rapid growth throughout the 19th Century and into the Victorian era as the Industrial Revolution took hold. For this reason Southport still contains lots of old and historic buildings, including examples of Victorian architecture. These buildings often have plenty of warm, dark and quiet spots in the roof, which makes them favourite breeding and roosting areas for bats. Whilst bats are a protected species in the UK, they’re actually much more common than you might think. As well as living in trees and caves they’re known to move around depending on the time of year and the particular species, and can be found in barns, stables, residential buildings and churches. And quite often the roof space of that Victorian building you want to renovate!

Southport bat surveying: your report in 2-5 working days

They’re harmless creatures, but their protected status means that any attempt to disturb them is against the law, which can present Southport developers with a major headache when bats are found in a property you’re renovating or extending. In these cases a bat survey must be carried out, as part of your planning application, and this is an area of legislation that most people won’t be familiar with.
