The gate house was part of a refurbishment scheme to create residential living space. Due to the presence of several bat species, the living accommodation was carefully isolated from the existing roosting spaces.
Autumn swarming bat behaviour was confirmed in 2009 at the east and west ferneries (internally and externally) of the South Terrace at Cliveden. This National Trust site underwent major restorative works between 2012-2017, planned to avoid affecting bat use of the site. Post-development monitoring confirms continued bat swarming activity onsite.
The owners/residents of a tythe barn proposed to convert its west/mid-sections into additional residential. Day roosts for Natterer’s, brown long-eared and common pipistrelle were present. Mitigation included integrating a bat loft into the existing barn space under EPS licence. Post-development monitoring confirmed continued bat presence afterwards.
Refurbishment project for disused barn hosting roosts for several species, including Natterer's bat, common pipistrelle, soprano pipistrelle and brown long-eared bat.
Conversion of barn (formerly a storage area for a farm) to residential dwelling. This involved removing day roosts for common pipistrelle and brown long-eared bat. A bat barn was provided as compensation.
A new 'bat tower' was constructed at Dalegarth Station, Eskdale Valley, Cumbria. This replaced an old station building, which was in a poor condition and obsolete. The old station building was scheduled for demolition to make space for the creation of a disabled access ramp to the platform.
