Environment Bill: Biodiversity Metric ‘Net Gain’

The draft bill includes a new mandatory condition on planning permission requiring the delivery of a 10% biodiversity gain to be applied to every planning permission issued for the development of land in England.

Weddles are experienced in use of the the DEFRA Biodiversity Metric 2.0, and can advise on a joined up approach on how to achieve the 10% biodiversity gain for a proposed development.
