Due to the decline in bat populations in the UK over the last century and the level of protection now afforded to bats, many planning applications must be supported by a bat survey. At Ascerta, we understand the importance of development schedules and strive to ensure that our clients do not suffer unnecessary delays as a result of any ecological issues.
We offer preliminary bat roost assessments, which evaluate the suitability of a building or tree to support a bat roost. In some instances this assessment will confirm that a particular building or tree has no potential to support a bat roost and as a result will allow a development to progress without the need for further survey work. We also offer bat activity, emergence, or re-entry surveys and aim to survey and issue a report at the quickest possible rate. If mitigation is required then we will work with our clients to produce and implement the required mitigation; throughout this process we will always be available to offer any additional advice or assistance.
