Our latest Under the Microscope podcast is now ready for download from your usual podcast provider.
Our Head of Rural Investment, Roland Bull, and RPS Ecology’s Mike Barber give us the lockdown low-down on how developers are readying themselves for the introduction of legislation that will ensure developers provide a 10 per cent net gain in biodiversity on all new schemes
The podcast covers:
- How planning and programme risk can be mitigated by assessing biodiversity requirements at an early stage
- On-site or off-site? What does delivering net gain in biodiversity mean in practice?
- Are developers and landowners fully aware of the implications of the Environment Bill, due for royal ascent later this year?
- What’s our experts advice for developers bringing forward sites this year?
