Bats Saved in Church Development!

Plecotus auritus in roost - Glossop Bat GroupGlossop Bat Group started to monitor planning applications on the HPBC Planning Portal in June 2012. We believe that many applications that should have bat surveys often do not have any bat surveys at all! One development that had been registered without a bat survey turned out to have a beautiful roost of long-eared bats, possibly the first ever found in the area during a survey for planning!
