The government has published its response to last January’s consultation on biodiversity net gain (BNG) this month. The consultation response confirms that developers will be required to deliver 10% BNG on most sites from November, with requirement for small sites introduced from April 2024. The government also announced £16 million funding for Local Planning Authorities to increase capacity and resource in teams to provide the oversight required. The consultation response has been added to the consultation page, and a new guidance page is available here.
