1. General information

If you come across bats or other protected wildlife when undertaking building works including demolition you must stop work immediately and contact your local bat specialist/wildlife specialist for advice.

Any development within a 10km radius of the Exe Estuary SPA/Ramsar site or Dawlish Warren SAC must provide mitigation against the impacts of the development.

Any development in the South Hams SAC, within the defined Sustenance Zone or Landscape Connectivity Zone, that might impact the bats or the areas they use must provide mitigation against the impacts of the development. These zones cover large areas of Teignbridge.
