ProCon Nottinghamshire Event Invite - Biodiversity Net Gain - Facts, Challenges and Case Studies - 6 Feb
Supporting our industry's network of property and construction professionals

Dear Member


Our first event of the year is taking place on Tuesday 6 February, 8.00am to 10.30am at Trent Bridge.

Major new biodiversity regulations come into effect in January 2024. Planning permissions granted for new housing, commercial and infrastructure developments will be required by law to deliver at least 10% biodiversity net gain.

These regulations become enforceable by April 2024 for smaller developers, while major Infrastructure Projects are expected to comply by 2025.

In November 2023, the Government published the draft secondary legislation which provides the detail for the new biodiversity net gain framework, together with six statutory instruments which will become law in early 2024.

The new regulations may be challenging but, if planning starts early enough, they also present real opportunities to deliver better outcomes for nature, communities and building occupants. The outcome should be new habitats and green spaces. It’s something you now need to factor from the initial stages of project planning.

We have put together a panel of speakers who can provide insight and guidance into this new legislation and talk through case studies to aid compliance.

Our speakers are:

Helen Mitcheson, Environmental Lawyer - Freeths
- Helen will be providing us with an overview of the biodiversity net gain regulatory framework for developers and land managers navigating biodiversity net gain requirements.

Oliver Ramm, Director - RammSanderson
- Oliver will provide details and examples of what this means in reality and the impact on projects.

Simone Codrington, Sustainability Manager - Willmott Dixon
- Simone will look at why BNG is important for customers and those developing schemes and what it means for them practically with top tips for adherence and project examples.

There will also be a Q&A session after the presentations as we know there will be a lot of questions. Plus our speakers will stay for the post networking so you can talk to them further.
