Bat Surveys of Proposed Road Scheme

WSP Environmental/Atkins

Keystone were initially commissioned by WSP Environmental to undertake a visual appraisal of all trees identified in their Phase I survey as having the potential to support roosting bats. We were then retained by Atkins to carry out the following:

  • Emergence surveys of trees with the potential to support bat roosts and which would be affected by the proposed scheme
  • Visual inspections of all bridges to identify potential as bat roosts and flight corridors
  • Bat emergence and activity surveys of all bridges with the potential to support roosts and/or function as flight corridors
  • Prepare a mitigation strategy for bats and attend meetings to discuss the strategy and associated timing constraints/mitigation with engineer
