Biodiversity Net Gain in Cumbria NW

Biodiversity Net Gain in Cumbria

Thursday, 20 June 2019 at 12:00PM - 4:00PM
Lake District National Park Authority, Murley Moss, Oxenholme Road, Kendal, LA9 7RL
RTPI North West

A joint event hosted by Natural England, Cumbria Planning Training Scheme and RTPI North West Young Planners

As human activity and development has expanded, so too has its impact upon the natural world, resulting in the rapid decline and disappearance of habitats and wildlife, along with the important ecosystem services they provide to our society.  in response, the Government is seeking to embed the Biodiversity Net Gain approach to development within the planning system and leave the natural environment in a measurably better state than it was beforehand.

Join us for this Cumbria focused event where we will be discussing the Biodiversity Net Gain approach, policy and guidance, and looking at Local Planning Authority case studies of how it can be done in practice.

Lunch and registration from 12 - 1pm
