Yes, absolutely. You will require a European protected species licence. Please contact us for a chat about your project and we can advise you accordingly.
Asked by JOHN RUSTON
Yes, we would be happy to help - of course, we cannot guarantee success for you where TPO applications are concerned, but we can certainly talk through the options.
Look forward to hearing from you
Asked by caroline
As is usually the case, the answer is that "it depends".
If bats are known to be roosting in a property then it is very unlikely that you will get planning (even outline) without a bat survey. If however, you have had both a physical inspection (preliminary roost assessment) and emergence surveys done (follow links if you're unsure what these are), then there is no reason why not.
I hope that is helpful.
Asked by Grahamtruscott
It's not clear whether you're asking about our reports, or reports in general. In either case the answer is...
...It depends. It would normally say something in your report about this, or in your appointed consultant's terms and conditions. A rough guide would be 12 months, though it could be a lot more or less depending upon the situation.
Asked by Clyde hunter
Yes, while it varies for a whole host of reasons, one season/year is probably at the upper end of the range most local planning authorities will accept.
Hope that helps.
Asked by Paul Carter
No, there is not a 'general box'. Some species are crevice dwelling and others are larger and need a void of some sort. So that's very odd.
Answer to your second question; no. I've never heard the name before.
Asked by John
We certainly can.
My colleague Matthew Middle would be the best person to speak with about this. You can contact him via 0787 212 7681 and mm[@]arbtech.co.uk.
Asked by Caroline Evered (Mrs)
The short answer is, yes, they can choose whether to ask you for one, or not.
If you need any further help, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Asked by Valerie
This sort of thing is not possible to determine unless you employ a combination of visual assessment and laboratory analysis of the soils and roots (if any), below your foundations.
Sorry we can't be more help, however you have asked for an answer to a question that deals with probabilities; not certainties.
Asked by Tim Wilcockson of Abba Energy Ltd
I don't know, off the top of my head.
I'll get someone to contact you today (Friday) or Monday.
