Home / News and Insights / Press / Biodiversity net gain rules delayed again

Originally set to come into force this month, the new biodiversity net gain rules have been delayed for the second time, until February 2024. Biodiversity Net Gain is a new obligation that will apply to almost all planning permissions and DCOs. Developers will be required to improve biodiversity by at least 10% compared with the situation before the development.

In articles for Housing Today, Building Design, Building Magazine, Pro Landscaper and New Start Magazine, partner Angus Walker comments on the challenges this will cause to developers as well as landowners.

‘[The news] that BNG rules have once again been delayed is really quite frustrating, particularly for developers who need clear and consistent regulations in order to effectively plan projects,’ Angus said. ‘The government has been clear that its goal is for a BNG market to evolve, one in which landowners improve land and sell it to developers, with BNG brokers acting as intermediaries.’

Subscribers to Building Design, Building Magazine and Housing Today can read Angus’ full commentary on their websites.
