Landscape and Urban Design for Bats and Biodiversity

This publication presents measures designers, consultants, developers and planners can use to enhance biodiversity on sites with a focus on bats. It covers landscape design features such as urban woodlands, trees, urban wetlands, green roofs, walls, linear features, eco-passages and lighting. It also includes a useful plant species list categorised by features such as rain gardens, green roofs, living walls and bed and borders based on plants that provide benefit to bats.

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