Upper Horsehall Hill Farm, Marlborough was scheduled for development when a bat roost was discovered. The presence of the bat roost inhibited the development process and in accordance with protected species legislation Ecosulis were commissioned to help develop a viable mitigation strategy.

At least 22 brown long-eared bats were recorded utilising the loft in the main house as a maternity roost, during daytime bat and evening/dawn surveys. The mitigation strategy we prepared included the creation of new roost chamber in the loft space during the re-roofing works, creation of new roosting opportunities through erection of bat boxes on nearby trees and retention of out-buildings prior to demolition. A precautionary approach during re-roofing and construction works was also undertaken.  

Renovation of the building and construction of the bat roost chamber was completed in 2012.
