The embedding of environmental net gain is a headline of the UK Government’s 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment. In this series of three episodes, we discuss how the UK Government proposes to implement the principle of biodiversity net gain for development. All three episodes are now available for you to listen to here.
Episode 3: The biodiversity gain objective and urban greening in London
In Episode 1 of this series, we discussed what the proposals for biodiversity gain in planning require. In Episode 2, we considered the ways in which a development may achieve the biodiversity gain objective.
In this third and final episode, Martyn Jarvis (Senior associate) and Fiona Sawyer (Professional support lawyer) of the London Planning Team discuss how the net-gain requirement ties in with an important green infrastructure policy in the emerging new London Plan, namely “urban greening”.
