Biodiversity Net Gain
The UK government has set ambitious goals within its 25 Year Environment Plan to protect and restore the natural environment within a generation.
Key to the realisation of this ambition is the requirement, implemented through the Town and Country Planning Act, for development to achieve Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG), delivering at least a 10% improvement in biodiversity.
The Wildlife Trust Consultancies provide a Biodiversity Net Gain service which is tailored to your requirements. Our Biodiversity specialists conduct baseline BNG Assessments and advise upon the options available to developers to achieve their BNG target. We design and implement effective habitat enhancement and compensation solutions and long term management plans for biodiversity, resulting in positive outcomes for nature conservation.
Delivering Biodiversity Net Gain is not always possible to achieve on site, in these instances the Wildlife Trust Consultancies are in a unique position and able to work with the Wildlife Trust to provide off site habitat compensation that aligns with local green infrastructure plans and Nature Recovery Networks on land that may otherwise be inaccessible to developers.
