National LNP response to Defra Net Gain Proposals

On 2 December 2018 the government launched a consultation to seek views on how we can improve the planning system in England to protect the environment (via biodiversity net gain) and build places to live and work.

 

It was agreed that it would be valuable to work collaboratively as a network of Local Nature Partnerships to write a collective response to the proposals on behalf of the LNP family across England.

 

With a huge contribution and agreement from 27 LNPs, we drafted a strong response which was submitted to Defra by the deadline on Sunday 10th February 2019. The National LNP Net Gain response can be viewed below. 

We have welcomed any opportunity to comment on a more detailed proposal after this consultation and have offered the support and engagement of the Local Nature Partnerships in the next stages.
