Natural England has announced a new class of bat mitigation license available to registered consultants.

The bat ‘low impact’ licence (CL21) is a mitigation class licence. In the event that affecting bat species on a project site cannot be avoided, the license allows registered ecological consultants to disturb and capture up to 3 ‘common or widespread’ bat species (which are listed in Annexes) and to damage or destroy up to 3 ‘low conservation status roosts’ (these are: feeding, day, night and transitional roosts).
