Hear what our people say

Navigate this confusing landscape of BNG and getting the necessary legal documentation.

"I really appreciated the ease of this system. I am a town planner myself and even I haven't quite got my head round these new rules. I was dreading having to go out and negotiate quotes to sort out bng, so really happy this service exists. It was great to be able to answer the straight forward questions, get quick answers and then be told exactly what position I was in. The pricing was spot on for the services I looked at, and they felt attainable for a self-builder such as myself.
This service is just what was needed to cater for the new regs."

Got a question?

Biodiversity Net Gain is a new legal requirement that most new planning applications in England will have to comply with. It requires developers to use the Government’s new Biodiversity Metric to calculate how many ‘Biodiversity Units’ are on their site and then set out a plan to increase the number of units so that the final score, after development, is 10% higher than what was originally there. Biodiversity Net Gain is based on a set of principles and rules which our service complies with at all stages.

This is a new tool that has been developed by the Government to assess how much biodiversity is lost by a development. A summary of the calculations are set out here.

This is a document that you need to produce in order to secure planning permission. Its requirements are set out in law. The Local Planning Authority can only grant you planning permission if you have produced a BGP that meets the statutory requirements. Our service will help you to produce a best-in-class BGP which meets the requirements of the Environment Act 2021 and Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
