Bat Surveys Wigan £329 – Greater Manchester Bat Surveying
A settlement has stood on the site of what is now Wigan since at least the 7th Century, and having experienced rapid growth in the last few hundred years this thriving town is now home to many thousands of people. Wigan is also home to a large number of bats, despite it being a relatively urban area. Like many other animals, bats have adapted over the years to their situations, and as well as living in trees they can also be found in barns, stables, attics and residential buildings, particularly older ones.
This can create a problem for developers, as bats are a protected species and so any attempt to damage their roost or move them can constitute a criminal offence, potentially leading to a heavy fine or even a prison sentence. Where it is suspected that bats may be roosting in or around a property, a bat survey must be completed and submitted as part of the planning application.
Arbtech – Wigan’s experts in bats
Wigan has plenty of old buildings that are ripe for renovation or extension, and so it can be hugely inconvenient when bats enter the equation. Many people will also be unfamiliar with this area of planning law, and won’t know how to carry out a proper bat survey that satisfies all legal requirements, and those of Lancs Wildlife Trust, who will be asked to comment on your application.
Leave that to us.
