With the Environment Bill due to reach Royal Assent Autumn 2021 and Biodiversity net gain to become a legal requirement by 2023, there is much to do prepare.

Biodiversity net gain (BNG) requires that “new houses [built]… protect and enhance nature, helping to deliver thriving natural spaces for local communities”. The principle will legally tie LAs, developers and other stakeholders to a BNG mandatory duty, requiring all new development to fulfill specific BNG targets.

Join us for an up-to-date brief on the biodiversity net gain duty and what it will mean for new development. 

Previous speakers include: 

  • Dr Nick White, Principal Adviser – Net Gain, Natural England
  • Fiona Siequien, Team Leader—Planning for the Environment, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
  • Jonny Miller, Principal Consultant—Biodiversity, WSP

  • Mike Webb, Technical Director—Ecology, SLR Consulting
