|The development permitted shall be carried out in strict accordance with the recommendations set out by the Council’s Natural Heritage and Biodiversity Officer. In particular:-
- An ecologist will remain on call for works affecting the roof. All roofing materials will be removed carefully by hand and inspected for presence of bats or bat droppings. If bats or evidence of bats is found, all works must stop immediately and the ecologist will advise on the best way to proceed lawfully.
Reasons: To ensure the proposed development contributes to the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity within the site and for the wider area in accordance with policy SWDP22 of the South Worcestershire Development Plan and to ensure compliance with the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). |
Buildings are frequently used as roosting sites by bats. Bats and their 'roost' sites are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017, the latter of which deems them a European Protected Species. It is a criminal offence to deliberately kill or injure a bat, to disturb or destroy a bat roost or to obstruct an entrance to a roost. If evidence of bats is found, work should stop immediately and Natural England must be contacted on 0845 6003078 for advice on the best way to proceed. All contractors working on site should be made aware of the advice and provided with the relevant contact details.
|Prior to the first use/occupation of the development hereby permitted, the details set out in the submitted Water Management Statement shall be fully implemented and remain thereafter.
Reason: To ensure that an appropriate sustainable drainage system is provided to serve the development in accordance with policy SWDP29 of the South Worcestershire Development Plan 2016.|
|Positive and Proactive Statement. No problems have arisen in dealing with this application. The planning application sought an acceptable form of development consistent with the requirements of relevant policies and material considerations. No amendments or alterations were therefore required and no further positive or proactive action was deemed necessary.|
