Bat licencing update

Natural England have granted an extension (Annex D) to Elizabeth’s Bat Mitigation Class Licence to include day and transitional roosts of low numbers of lesser horseshoe bats in addition to other bat species for which the licence can be used (i,e, small numbers of common/soprano pipistrelle, brown long-eared, Natterer’s, Brandt’s, Daubenton’s). This will speed up the licensing process for projects involving lesser horseshoe roosts of relatively low conservation status located in the southwest of England.
