|The development hereby permitted shall be carried out in strict accordance with the recommendations set out in the preliminary bat roost assessment report produced by Countryside Consultants, dated May 2020 and submitted with this application. In particular:
- The removal of the upper third layers of roof tiles on the south-east pitch is undertaken by hand and supervised by a licensed ecologist. Bats and their roost sites have strict legal protection. Should any recent evidence of roosting or a bat be found, works will cease and not recommence until an appropriate course of action has been agreed with the ecologist.
- To deliver net enhancement, the proposed development will include the provision of an integral wall mounted bat tube or box on the south facing gable of the extension slightly off-set from the apex to avoid proximity with the upper floor window. Access to this box will be allowed through a notch cut into the timber cladding material.
On completion of works the development shall be inspected by a qualified ecologist and a statement of conformity shall be submitted to the Local Planning Authority to confirm the mitigation, compensation and enhancement measures for biodiversity have been successfully implemented in accordance with the details approved under this condition.
Reason - To ensure the development contributes to the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity within the site and 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) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (as amended).|
Buildings, and particularly roofs and the spaces underneath them, 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 & Species Regulations 2010, 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 an ecological consultant contacted for advice on the best way to proceed. All contractors working on site should be made aware of the advice and provided with the contact details of a relevant ecological consultant.|
