a mandate for net gain
Biodiversity net gain set to become law
In recognition of this crisis, the UK Government has put the principle of environmental net gain front and centre, with the emerging Environment Bill and Agriculture Bill set to mandate for the protection, restoration and creation of a healthy, high-quality environment – supported by public incentives and private investment.
Going forward, developers, landowners, and local authorities alike will need to act with the environment front of mind – whether their goal is to achieve planning permission, create supplementary income streams, or guarantee legal compliance.
This series of reports aims to address the concerns and needs of these key stakeholders and to guide them through the benefits and opportunities biodiversity and environmental net gain bring, as well as the strategies for achieving it.
