Conversion of redundant barn in Carmarthenshire

Prior to the conversion of a redundant barn into an office / workshop, bat surveys recorded low numbers of common pipistrelle bats emerge from the roof. A EPS licence was therefore obtained for removing the roosts but incorporating similar features into the renovated building. Post-development monitoring surveys recorded a common pipistrelle maternity colony using the new provisions.
