Advice For Professionals, Ecologists & Architects

Two people in high visibility clothing working on the exterior of a churchWorking with churches that have bats can be a very long and complicated process. It involves obtaining the required bat licence, faculty and other permissions and often managing works to be complete at a specific time of year.

Mitigation work in our project churches has always been most successful when the church, architect, ecologist and DAC have worked together closely from the very early planning stages of each project, sharing their expertise and understanding at each step.

This section provides a range of resources for professionals working with churches, including faculty, bat licensing, current research, conservation and cleaning, and case studies from our project churches.

We also provide training courses, advice or talks for professionals both bat and heritage based.
