Biodiversity Net Gain
The Essex Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) Guidance Pack has been produced by the BNG working group, within the Essex Local Nature Partnership. The purpose of the guidance pack is to provide you with an overview of the facts and guidance so far on BNG. The BNG guidance pack covers everything from ‘How does BNG work?’ to the ‘National Register and Statutory Credits Scheme’, providing you with a holistic outline of BNG. The guidance pack is aimed at a wide audience and is suitable for Local Planning Authorities, Developers and Landowners. England are currently in an interim period, less than a year away from mandatory BNG.
The approach to BNG may evolve as new guidance is released.
