CIEEM, CIRIA and IEMA have jointly published new guidance on biodiversity net gain.  Following the publication of Biodiversity Net Gain good practice principles for development in 2016 (available here) the following documents have now also been released:

Biodiversity Net Gain Good Practice Principles for Development – A practical Guide

Biodiversity Net Gain: Good practice principles for development Gain – Case studies (2019)

The Defra 25 year plan set out the Government’s intention for planning to follow an environmental net gain approach and to open a consultation (read the Bakerwell article here) on whether to mandate biodiversity net gain in development.  

These documents provide guidance for those designing, planning and delivering development projects on how to achieve biodiversity net gain in developments.
