Professionals in Greater Manchester’s environmental services sector are invited to a free webinar on 10 February to learn more about embedding Biodiversity Net Gain within new developments.

The exclusive webinar will explore the good practice principles for Biodiversity Net Gain and Greater Manchester’s own guidance as part of its commitment to enhancing biodiversity across the city region.

Biodiversity Net Gain is an approach to development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than before. Where a development has an impact on biodiversity, it encourages developers to provide an increase in appropriate natural habitat and ecological features over and above that being affected. It is hoped that the current loss of biodiversity through development will be halted and ecological networks can be restored.

As part of proposals being brought forward by the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan and the forthcoming Environment Bill, future developments will need to achieve a net gain for biodiversity of 10 per cent.

Nature-based solutions and the exciting opportunities ahead for Greater Manchester

The webinar on 10 February will be hosted by Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). To register, click here.
