Event description

Description

Lighting often comes up as an important issue for bats when planning and development are being considered. Greater horseshoe bats are known to be particularly light sensitive, and so minimising the impact of lighting is key for conservation. This workshop aims to bring together the latest research and good practice and to provide a space to discuss some of the big questions.

The afternoon will start with a brief update on the new South Hams SAC GHB guidance which is now in effect and replaces previous guidance. This will be followed by updates from Professor Fiona Mathews on; the latest lighting research, including trials of red streetlights for use in areas sensitive for bats; Lighting plans and the measurement of light in the field; and ensuring compliance with lighting strategies.

This workshop is hosted by Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Project in collaboration with Devon County Council and the University of Sussex.

Places are limited on this free workshop so we are initially asking that there is only 1 representative from each organisation, so please discuss with colleagues before booking a place. We may be able to release further tickets later on, additional places booked from the same organisation may be cancelled by the organisers.

Full programme will be sent out via email prior to the workshop

This is a repeat of the morning workshop to accomodate further delegates
