Minimum Survey Standards

This document was launched on 14th November 2013 at a Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) presentation in Thirsk. It is written in order to provide minimum standards for bat survey within North Yorkshire for all biodiversity stakeholders such as planners, developers, consultants and conservation workers in both the voluntary and private sector.

This document is provided in addition to National Guidance in order to apply local species knowledge and form a basis for the geographic context of bat survey within North Yorkshire, as different bat species occur within different roost types in different counties.
