Planning Portal News: Defra Consultation on Biodiversity Net Gain

Defra have published their consultation on Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) regulations and implementation. It’s open until 5 April 2022.

To help LPAs understand what it covers and how best to respond, PAS (Planning Advisory Service) are running overview events with Defra, Natural England and DLUHC for officers on 8, 10 and 16 February and for members on 15 February. They will also run deep-dive topic-based discussion sessions in March – dates TBC. Further information on BNG for local authorities, including FAQs, is available on the PAS website.

We know from our Annual Conference in November just how much interest there is in this new policy, so this is a great opportunity to understand it in more detail.
