Bats and Lighting: Guidance Notes for Planners, Engineers, Architects and Developers

These guidance notes aim to provide, for planners, lighting engineers, lighting designers and developers, information on the potential impacts of lighting on bats and how this can be reduced. They also include recommended mitigation for roosts and commuting / foraging areas.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Bats, produced by Becky Collins.
