Somerset Council's consultation on Biodiversity Net Gain is now live until 4 December '23. This is a new duty for local government, which needs to define policies on their approach to biodiversity by early next year - Somerset Council's policy focusses upon planning and biodiversity where, for new developments, biodiversity net gain will be the priority consideration. For parish councils, consideration will be more focussed on local initiatives appropriate for the area they cover. You can find more information from this week's Somerset Council SEEN newsletter.
