Planning

On 27 March 2012, the UK Government published its final version of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), which sets out the Government's planning policies for England and how they should be applied.

The final NPPF is an improvement (for nature conservation) over the initial draft that went out for consultation in 2011, however there are still some concerns.

All British species of bats and their places of shelter are protected under UK and European law. It is an offence to kill, injure or disturb a bat or to damage or obstruct access to a place used for shelter or protection by bats.  A European Protected Species Licence (EPSL) is therefore required to lawfully undertake development works to a building that is a confirmed bat roost and would otherwise trigger an offence.
