Bats and Planning

The Surrey Bat Group receives many enquiries each week concerning bats and development. We are in the process of building a series of pages which we hope will be able to provide answers to the majority of these enquiries.

The first of these is a general guide to bats in the planning process intended to provide advice to members of the public who are concerned at the impact a development may have on their local bat population.

The second is a set of criteria we have prepared for local councils to help them determine the type of applications for which they should require the developer to commission and submit a survey for.
