Biodiversity Net Gain - Requirements, Implementation and Opportunities - Online

Join us for this new training session to find out where Biodiversity Net Gain sits within the Environment Bill and what you need to do to comply

Biodiversity Net Gain is development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than before. Biodiversity Net Gain sits within the Environment Bill which, when in force, will require all development schemes to deliver a mandatory 10% biodiversity net gain to be maintained for at least 30 years. Many Local Planning Authorities are already requesting that plans allow for these requirements.

In this online training session, Eight Associates will fully explain the implications of Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) requirements, including how to integrate BNG into development plans to avoid costly mistakes and achieve planning permission.
