Breedon Hill, Derby – Bat Survey
A lovely family in the Beeston Hill area of Derby are looking to extend their home. I was asked to attend the property to complete a preliminary bat survey before the planning application could be registered.
There were places in the building that could support bat roosts – even a maternity roost, but given its urban location and the surrounding habitat I was able to downgrade the assessment from ‘high suitability’ to ‘medium’. Further surveys will be needed to confirm whether bats roost here, but my clients will have fewer surveys and lower costs with the lower assessment.
