Biodiversity net gain aims to leave the natural environment in a better state following development by providing lasting benefits ensuring the appropriate habitat is provided which is then managed, maintained, and monitored for the long-term. Developers will need to provide an increase in appropriate natural habitat and ecological features over and above that already on site in order to achieve a suitable net gain.
