Display area extends at Nottingham - after Batman Survey
20 October 2011
Work is under way to enlarge the outdoor caravan display area at our Nottingham site. An initial appraisal of the area identified the need to trim a row of tall Poplar trees as a precaution against falling branches into the new display area. This lead to a requirement to employ the services of a Protected Species Surveyor to assess the risk to wildlife habitat, particularly bats, by pruning the trees.
Our 'Batman' identified that one of the trees did have evidence of bats, with a roost present, and we have been careful to minimise disturbance around the area, leaving the tree untrimmed. Fortunately it is at the far end of the new display area and the risk of branches falling into it is slight.
