INFORMATIVE 2: Buildings of all ages and trees with suitable features (i.e. rot-holes, cracks, fissures) are frequently used by roosting bats. Bats and their ‘roost’ sites are fully protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended), making them a European Protected Species. It is a criminal offence to recklessly disturb or destroy a known or suspected bat ‘roost’, even if the roost is only occasionally used. Where a bat ‘roost’ is present a license may be necessary to carry out any works. Further information about species licensing and legislation can be obtained from the Species Licensing Service on 02080 261089. If evidence of bats is found during works, work should stop immediately and the National Bat Helpline must be contacted on 0345 1300 228 for advice on the best way to proceed.

INFORMATIVE 3: Work should avoid disturbance to nesting birds. Birds can nest in many places including buildings, trees, shrubs dense ivy, and bramble/rose scrub. Nesting birds are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). The main nesting season, lasts approximately from March to September, so work should ideally take place outside these dates if at all possible. N.B birds can nest at any time, and the site should ideally be checked for their presence immediately before work starts, especially if during the breeding season.
