Maudelyns Barn, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire (original case study requiring update)

A redundant timber-framed barn was converted into a residential dwelling, with a ceiling inserted at tie beam level. Although a loft space was integrated into the conversion, this was not part of a site-wide mitigation program as no EPS licence was obtained. This case study presents the findings of post-development monitoring work at a site where a brown long-eared maternity colony returned despite the absence of any specific mitigation.
