Bat Surveys

Require an Ecology or Bat Survey in Devon? 


There are a whole host of reasons why a local authority might request a bat survey. Invariably, barn conversions and alterations to an existing roof structure no matter how minor, will often trigger a requirement for a bat survey. Initially, this is usually for a 'scoping survey' to consider whether more complete surveys are actually required. Occassionally, this initial survey is all that is required. Other times this is simply a precursor to Emergence Surveys. Please call to discuss your personal requirements
