Although in some parts of the world, even these attempts to minimise impact have been scrapped:

Meanwhile in this part of the world, there are concerns around plans to mitigate the impact of demolishing a barn on several bat populations:

The East Devon Watch blog is certainly not impressed:
CLINTON DEVON SERVE EVICTION NOTICE ON 11 SPECIES OF BAT
9 AUG 2018
A new nature protection group has been formed in East Budleigh to try to save eleven species of bat from having their habitat destroyed. Six of these species are amongst the rarest found in Britain. The story has broken today simultaneously on BBC Radio Devon and BBC Spotlight, presented by Adrian Campbell, and in the Exmouth Journal.
Owl will comment after using the following Journal story to set the scene:
CDE providing a brand new Des. Res. for free? There must be a catch.
Owl fears for these bats.
Are they going to be sent away for a holiday by the sea whilst their ancient barn (oldest still standing in East Budleigh) is bulldozed away and their new bat loft constructed?
Temporary social housing is a non-starter. As mentioned in one of the Spotlight interviews, what are they going to do for food. They feed on moths but the overgrown habitat of the moths is also going to be bulldozed?
And how are they going to navigate when the trees they use for echo location have also been razed to the ground as well?
Owl has many, many bat friends who join it in its nocturnal foreys and is VERY protective of them.
However, for the status of Clinton Devon Estates environmental credentials see just a few recent Owl stories here (there are many more):
