Estates Gazette talk Biodiversity Net Gain with EB at UKREiiF
General Counsel at Environment Bank, Alexa Culver, recently sat down with Tim Burke from Estates Gazette and Ben Stansfield, a partner at Gowling WLG, to discuss biodiversity net gain (BNG).
On the agenda was what planners, developers, and local authorities must prepare for to ensure legal compliance and get the best from the new requirement.
