Alarming news was received recently from a DAC Secretary in the South East stating current research suggested breathable roofing membranes e.g. Tyvek, previously accepted by Natural England are killing Bats.
Further investigation with local ecology groups in the South East resulted in us being sent a paper (attached) from Stacey Waring on breathable membranes.
We would welcome any comments, thoughts or experiences from members on this news and the paper.
