Action: Change timing of building works
- We found no evidence for the effects of changing the timing of building works on bats.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
To reduce disturbance to bats, building works may be avoided at times of the year when they are most vulnerable such as during hibernation and the breeding season.
