Bats, buildings and the law (planning advice note)

​Bats are increasingly using buildings for roosting because natural sites in tree holes and caves have become more scarce or disturbed.
All buildings are potential roost sites, in particular their: 

  • walls
  • eaves
  • roofs

Anyone working regularly in these areas should be aware of what signs to look out for and how to work within the law, such as: 

  • surveyors
  • architects
  • plumbers
  • roofers
  • pest technicians
  • insulators

If you would like further information about bats and how they are treated by law, download our leaflet.
