Bats and building work
Bats and their roosts are protected by British and European Law; a roost is protected even when bats are not currently occupying it.
If you find evidence of bats while carrying out building work of any kind, or you will be doing work that could affect bats or their roost in any way, contact Natural England for advice on 0845 600 3078 or Jenny Harris (see contact numbers above).
