New Homes For Bats

Bat House

EAD has helped to design a purpose built ‘Bat House’ for Cavanna Homes. The bat house was required as part of a major housing and commercial development in Torbay. The bat house includes features suitable for rare horseshoe bats and was completed in spring 2013.  Michael Newman, Cavanna Homes’ Development Manager, says “as well as providing much needed homes for people, we are also pleased to be providing places for declining wildlife such as bats”.  EAD is currently implementing a monitoring program to assess bat use of the site.
