Bat Found During Building Works

Always wear gloves to handle bats. If you need help, call the Bat Helpline - 0345 1300 228

Bats and their roosts are protected by law.

This means if work needs to be done to any building that is known to contain a bat roost, or that may contain a bat roost, the relevant statutory nature conservation organisation (SNCO) must be contacted in advance for advice.

 If bats are discovered during work then the   work must stop immediately until the relevant SNCO has been contacted and advice given.
