The Earned Recognition (ER) Project is a partnership between Natural England (NE), the Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) and CIEEM. The aims of the project are to design a scheme to streamline the mitigation licensing process for bats in England, raise and maintain professional standards in bat mitigation work, and improve outcomes for bats.
Natural England will be running a webinar for mitigation licence holders (or those who intend to hold such licences in the future) from 1-2pm on Thursday 19 November 2020 to introduce the project, host a Q&A session and launch a detailed consultation. The aim of the detailed consultation (which will be open for a month, closing on 19 December) is to gather licence holders’ views on the proposed ER scheme, inform a pilot to be run in 2021 and identify individuals who could potentially be involved in the pilot.
Join the webinar to find out more and take part in the Q&A.
[Note: Natural England is running a high level consultation for other stakeholders in the development process concurrently.]
