Bat surveys performed in 2020 for the Arundel bypass scheme

The request was successful.

Dear Highways England Company Limited,

Your recent Scoping Report on the Arundel bypass scheme says at Para 9.4.12: 'The scope of additional field surveys that are required to update the existing baseline information are described in Table 17. These surveys will focus on addressing gaps in the existing baseline information and confirming data for selected ecological features. Some of these surveys have already been commenced in 2019 and 2020.'

As I know from seeing the 2019 Scope 1 and 2 baseline bat radio-tracking surveys through an FOI request, the 2019 surveys were not merely “commenced” at the time the Scoping Report was issued - they were complete and internally reported (in April 2020), though not made public.

Since the 2019 surveys were reported in April 2020, there has now been time for the surveys perfomed in 2020 to have been reported. Please send me the 'additional field surveys' on bats for the Arundel bypass that were performed in 2020.

Emma Tristram

Yours faithfully,
