The Roost project promotes best practice through sharing bat roost mitigation design and enhancement case studies, partnership working and improving products to enhance the built environment for bats.

The Awards focus on showcasing exemplar work; entries are scored on data collection, design, planning and monitoring, but also what lessons can be learned and remedial actions taken.

Jo Ferguson, Built Environment Manager for the Bat Conservation Trust, explained: “Case studies should clearly show consideration for data collection at the baseline and monitoring stages, a thorough understanding of the planning and design process but also be able to reflect on learning acquired through this process.”

Judges for the Awards include academics, nature conservation bodies and previous winners, in this case the 2021 winner Chris Damant from Bernwood ECS Ltd for “Avoidance of swarming site loss during restoration works at Cliveden.” www.bats.org.uk/our-work/buildings-planning-and-development/roost-replacement-and-enhancement/case-studies/avoidance-of-swarming-site-loss-during-restoration-works-at-cliveden

The Award winners will be announced at the next National Bat Conference in October.
