This CIEEM course will look at when and how a derogation licence can be obtained, primarily looking at the licensing process in Scotland. Potential impacts that could affect bats will be discussed including roost destruction, roost disturbance and other impacts will be considered such as loss of foraging and collision impacts. Various mitigation and compensation options will be reviewed. There will be discussion on best practice methods of working for roost destruction and exclusions. The course should enable delegates to prepare licence applications and bat Species Protection Plans with more confidence. Examples will be primarily of Scottish bat species. The course will be classroom based. Opportunity will be given for questions and discussion. Advice on further reading and key references will be given.
