Enabling Biodiversity Net Gain in the Planning System

Tuesday 3 November 2020 - 03/11/20

Online

The Government’s new Environment Bill 2020 introduces a requirement for biodiversity net gain in the planning system “to ensure that new developments enhance biodiversity and create new green spaces for local communities to enjoy.” The planning system in the UK is now required to work actively to protect and stimulate healthy growth in flora and wildlife. Recognising importance of increasing biodiversity, the Bill sees the planning system as a resource for safeguarding natural assets rather than a necessary burden.

The increased focus on biodiversity in the planning system is timely. Findings from the State of Nature Report 2019 indicates the net loss of nature in the UK has not decreased since the 1970.  At the same time, demographic changes are also putting an increased strain on natural resources. Around 11% of land in England is developed, and each year new building takes place on an average of 17,000 hectares of undeveloped land. Meeting the new requirements for biodiversity net gain in the planning system will therefore depend on innovation, collaboration, and communication between relevant actors.

This event features key updates on meeting the requirements for biodiversity net gain in planning systems as well as policies from government departments. It will feature good practice case studies in incorporating sustainability and biodiversity net gain in new planning projects . The conference also provides delegates with practical advice for implementing sustainable solutions in the planning system moving forward.

This conference will provide:

– Case studies from leading experts on biodiversity in the planning system

– High level keynotes on the latest government policies regarding biodiversity net gain

– A wide range of topics covering urban, country and coastal settings

– 8 hours of CPD points towards your yearly quota
