IPF SEMINAR: Biodiversity Net Gain: Developing, Managing and Funding
Developers in England will be required to deliver 10% “Biodiversity Net Gain” for development under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 from January 2024 onwards, unless exempt. By the end of November, the government is expected to publish all guidance and the regulations including:
• the statutory biodiversity metric, critical for calculating the correct biodiversity gain
• the draft biodiversity gain plan template, which will help developers prepare for what they will need to complete during the planning application stages
• the Habitat Management and Monitoring Plan template, which will set out how the improved significant on-site and off-site habitats will be managed for the long term
• a package of Biodiversity Net Gain guidance that sets out further advice for landowners, developers, and Local Planning Authorities around their role and responsibilities in delivering mandatory Biodiversity Net Gain
Join us to hear from experts exploring the regulatory framework, applying the biodiversity metric, managing, and financing BNG.
