Walk MillMilner Ecology was commissioned by B&E Boys Ltd to undertake an extended Phase 1 Habitat survey and assessment of large mill complex in Keighley. The site included active light industrial units and the empty mill itself. The site was scheduled for conversion into a residential development.

Following the survey a planning report was produced confirming the lack of bat roosts and enabling the development to proceed.
