EVENT - Biodiversity Net Gain - Facts, Challenges and Case Studies

16th May 2024: 9.00am arrival and breakfast. 9.30am start to presentations. Close approx. 11.30am

BOOKINGS FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW CLOSED

Major new biodiversity regulations came into effect in January 2024. Planning permissions granted for new housing, commercial and infrastructure developments will be required by law to deliver at least 10% biodiversity net gain.

These regulations became enforceable in April 2024 for smaller developers, while major Infrastructure Projects are expected to comply by 2025.

In November 2023, the Government published the draft secondary legislation which provides the detail for the new biodiversity net gain framework, together with six statutory instruments which are now law.

The new regulations may be challenging but, if planning starts early enough, they also present real opportunities to deliver better outcomes for nature, communities and building occupants. The outcome should be new habitats and green spaces. It’s something you now need to factor from the initial stages of project planning.

We have put together a panel of speakers who can provide insight and guidance into this new legislation and talk through case studies to aid compliance.

Our speakers are:

  • Penny Simpson, Partner - Freeths
  • Jon Golby, Chartered Landscape Architect - The Habitat Bank
  • Simone Codrington, Sustainability Manager - Willmott Dixon
  • Emelye Kenyon, Director - Environmental - Pick Everard
  • John Bristow, Senior Nature Conservation Officer - Leicester City Council

There will also be a Q&A session after the presentations as we know there will be a lot of questions. Plus our speakers will stay for the post networking so you can talk to them further.
