Biodiversity Net Gain

Biodiversity Net Gain

Planning policy is changing, prompting the emergence of offset markets as a means of achieving biodiversity objectives. This is presenting new challenges and opportunties for developers and landowners alike.

Combining ecological expertise, with commercial mindedness, we have developed a range of end-to-end, high integrity BNG support services, with a focus around bringing together landowners and developers to deliver high quality offsite ecological enhancement schemes.

BNG For Landowners

We have been supporting landowners in accessing funding for, and in the delivery of, ambitious habitat creation & restoration schemes for over 15 years. Our position within the sector makes us unique, in that we can unlock and blend together charitable, public and private sector funding opportunties in order to bring schemes to fruition, whilst ensuring a fair deal for the landowner. Our BNG services include:

  • Baseline BNG assessments & scenario forecasting to understand the potential BNG uplift available on your holding
  • Easy access to the BNG marketplace through our trusted and competitive Biodiversity+ brokering service.
  • End-to-end support with the design, implementation and management of habitat offset schemes.

BNG For Developers

We work with a range of organisations and businesses with development needs, supporting them on their BNG journey through the provision of all or part of the following scope of services:

  • Onsite & offsite baseline BNG assessments
  • Identification & brokering of offsite habitat offsetting opportunities
  • Support & engagement with Local Planning Authorities
