How to overcome biodiversity net gain challenges

Our Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) experience has highlighted a number of issues and pitfalls that can pose a real threat to BNG success.

With the policy now becoming mandatory in England, Mike Barker, Director of Ecology, has put together a series of short video blogs to address some of the complexities that may arise when applying BNG on site. 

The importance of knowing your site's ecological value

How valuable is your site? How many habitat credits are you working with?

Without these details, you cant begin to apply BNG to your project.
