We offer a range of bat surveys including Scoping Bat Surveys, Bat Emergence Surveys and Bat Licences.
Questions like “what happens to my planning application if I have bats?” are asked of our team on a daily basis by people just like you, all across the UK.
We know that bats might not have been in your game plan and the original costings for your project, so we do appreciate you’re a little worried about what comes next. Fortunately, our team have never failed to secure a planning consent for a client where bats have been found or are even suspected to be present at a site. Of course, there’s a protocol to follow; surveys to be done, reports to be submitted to your local planners, and in some rare cases, protected species licences to be obtained… but that’s all in a day’s work for us here at Arbtech. With six fully licenced bat consultants we have among the broadest and deepest bat expertise of any ecological consultancy in the country.
