Biodiversity Net Gain under the Environment Act 2021: Key Issues for Consultant Ecologists

This is a legal course for consultant ecologists on the new Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) (and related) provisions under the Environment Act 2021.

The course will focus on:

  • What are the BNG requirements under the 2021 Act?
  • When will the BNG legal requirements come into force?
  • What legal agreements are needed to underpin biodiversity units?
  • What will be the role of s106s / conservation covenants?
  • What is the role of the biodiversity unit register?
  • What do we expect the anticipated secondary legislation to cover?
  • What will this mean for developers?
  • What will this mean for landowners?
  • How will this fit with existing policy-driven (development-plan) BNG requirements?
  • What happens now if landowners want to offer biodiversity units?
