Charmydown Barns, Bath


Working with Watson Bertram and Fell (WBF) Architects, Tyler Grange provide ecology advice in respect of successful planning and listed building applications and discharge of planning conditions for alterations to and conversion of 17th century Grade II listed farm buildings at Charmydown, Swainswick, near Bath.


The site supports roosts of the rare lesser horseshoe bat, as well as other bat roosts, and common reptiles.


Our advice is ongoing and to date has included:

  • Working alongside WBF to design appropriate mitigation measures to retain or provide new roost sites, whilst not compromising the client’s preferred development designs;

  • Obtaining and implementing Natural England licences for disturbance to/modification of roosts. The compensatory roosts have already been adopted by the bats;

  • Provision of new roosting and nesting opportunities for barn owl;

  • Devising and implementing a strategy to move slow worms to allow construction works to commence.
