Building a better future – Preparing for biodiversity net gain
Venue & Event Details
The Government is continuing to impose tighter environmental regulations on the development and construction industry to protect the natural environment. The much-anticipated Environment Act 2021 brings in the introduction of a mandatory 10 per cent biodiversity net gain (BNG) requirement on every planning permission granted in England, no matter how big or small. BNG which will not be enforced until late 2023 at the earliest, will put nature and biodiversity centre stage of all future development projects. Are developers, landowners and local authorities ready for the mandating of BNG?
The House Briefing will explore the key elements of the BNG policy and its implications on new housing and major infrastructure developments. Hear first-hand from the Government, policy experts and leaders in industry who will share their insight and offer practical guidance to prepare and be ready for the new mandatory BNG requirements.
- How will BNG be incorporated into the planning system of England?
- What will BNG mean for local authorities, developers and landowners?
- Who is responsible for creating net gain and then managing and maintaining it long-term?
- How will biodiversity be measured and whose responsibility will it be to measure it?
- What are the costs involved?
- What are the options for offsite biodiversity?
