Bird Survey Guidelines: Traditional Farm Buildings

Bird Survey Guidelines: Traditional Farm Buildings

Built/Urban Heritage & Archaeology Natural Heritage & Biodiversity /

The Heritage Council has prepared guidance that surveyors must follow when undertaking bird surveys under the REPS 4 Traditional Farm Buildings Grant scheme. This is to ensure that the survey is undertaken in line with current best practice, and that the works are designed in such a way as not to impact upon the protected wildlife.

Many traditional farm buildings may be home to nesting birds. As these are protected by law, buildings in receipt of a REPS 4

Traditional Farm Buildings Grant may require a bat and/ or bird survey before any works commence.
