Event description
Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) is an approach to development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than it was before.

It will become a legal requirement for all developments (unless exempt) to achieve a 10% biodiversity net gain from November 2023 onwards.

This is part of the government’s response to the climate and nature emergency.

During March the council published its Biodiversity and Planning SPD ( giving practical advice and guidance on the steps the council expects developers to take to ensure new development achieves the council’s objectives for supporting nature recovery.

This webinar is intended to help colleagues across the council in understanding what BNG means for them, their work and how they can start preparing. The webinar will also explain the council’s approach, during this transitional period, until BNG become mandatory.
