Biodiversity Net Gain
Biodiversity Net Gain is an existing NPPF requirement for development sites, although no percentage gain is currently specified.
The Environment Bill, which is expected to be received Royal Assent by the end of this year will impose a requirement for a 10% Biodiversity Net Gain on development sites.
Although there will be transitional arrangements in place, we are already seeing many Local Planning Authorities seeking to impose policies requiring a 10% Net Gain (or even in excess of 10%).
