New care home plans must allow for bats

A CARE home catering for 78 old folk – and an unknown number of baby bats – could be built at North Wootton.
West Norfolk development control board is on Monday due to consider an outline planning application for the home at The Lodge in Manor Road, opposite the church.
The development includes construction of a 50 bed-space care home and 24 close-care bungalows, and conversion of the existing house to four close-care flats.
If approved, conditions recommended include minimising disturbance to a pipistrelle bat maternity roost discovered in a roof junction. Maintaining access to an attic space for long-eared bats would also be required.
