Make planning negotiation easier from the start
If contentious environmental issues are addressed early on in the process, conflict with national or local plan policy can be avoided, smoothing the path to approval. Biodiversity design early in the project development is becoming even more imperative as the requirement for 10% biodiversity net gain (BNG) moves onto the statute books and becomes prevalent in local plan policies.
