Nest provision for Barn Owls within buildings

Donate Support Our Work Button 2If your area is suitable, it is perfectly possible to create an excellent, permanent nesting space for Barn Owls in a loft or roof space. Many types of rural building can have an owl roost or nest space built-in. 

The presence of Barn Owls will not usually result in the refusal of a planning application for a barn conversion. We support the renovation and conversion of old buildings as long as permanent provision for Barn Owls is incorporated into the design. After all, an unused derelict building, however picturesque, will only deteriorate and eventually become unsuitable for Barn Owls to live in.
