Bat Advice Service Contract - Response to Natural England - November 2019
At South Yorkshire Bat Group we were disappointed to see that the scope of the Bat Advice Service Contract had been reduced and now does not include re-roofing of domestic dwellings. What this effectively does is increase costs and red tape for homeowners wanting to maintain their properties. We think this will have a serious negative impact on bat conservation,and will obviously cause anguish for people who can only just afford to carry out the work. We've written a letter to Marian Spain of Natural England to ask them to consider reinstating the scope of this great service. We thought we'd share it here.
