Conduct a Record Search
Records searches are most often carried out by environmental consultants and or interested parties who require information on known bat activity and/or roosts prior to development or other engineering operations taking place as part of the planning application process. All data held and or made available will be subject to the Data Protection Act.
SLBG are currently working in partnership with the Greater Manchester Local Record Centre in order to provide a single point of contact for those seeking ecological records. Should you require a records search, please contact the GMLRC at www.gmwildlife.org.uk providing a grid reference and the radius of the required search.
If you have seen a bat locally, please fill in the Bat-recording-form1 and email it to the group’s records officer (address is on the form). These records are very important in furthering our understanding of which bats we have and their distribution and abundance locally. Record searches are also reduced in cost for consultancies who supply bat records to the group.
