What is biodiversity net gain?
The Environment Act 2021 introduces a new requirement for 10% net gain in biodiversity for most planning applications. Under the new law, LPAs will have to ensure that an application is compliant with the new rules before granting planning permission.
The new rules are coming into force from November 2023.
How Joe’s Blooms is helping LPAs
Our motto is ‘biodiversity made simple’ because we want everyone to be able to contribute to reversing biodiversity loss. Our LPA Portal and Net Gain Seminars provide pro bono assistance with implementing the new rules:
Our LPA Portal is an easy-to-use control centre for controlling BNG requirements in your area and collating the reporting data you need for central government
Our Net Gain Seminars series offers training and guidance to LPAs on the new regime, where we share the expertise we've gained over the years building towards BNG
Local Planning Authorities will soon have to implement the new BNG policy
Reversing biodiversity loss is our mission
We want all development to help reverse biodiversity loss. When you see a BGP produced with our tools, you can know that it is fully statutorily compliant.
