Congratulations to our Consultant Ecologist, Brooke Waites, who has been awarded her Level 2 Bat Survey Licence by Natural England. As well as being an important milestone for professional ecologists, having a bat licence means that Brooke is legally permitted to inspect buildings and trees used by roosting bats.
Now all members of the TMA Ecology team have Level 2 bat licences. So they can undertake close inspections of buildings and trees to find out whether bat roosts are present and likely to be impacted by development proposals. This helps make sure our surveys are as informative as possible and minimises the need for return visits.
