That “we should leave the environment in a better state than we found it” is a key aim of the government’s 25-year Environment Plan. As biodiversity net gain becomes one of the ways councils can fight climate change through requirements on planning authorities and forthcoming new environmental legislation, this event will examine what this means for local councils and what they can do for their area. Hear a stark assessment of the biodiversity crisis and how planning and environmental legislation will impact communities and local councils. Find out more about local nature recovery strategies, how local councils can help police the 30-year net gain from developments and take action now to improve biodiversity and level up the environment.
Speakers: Cllr Ed Gemmell, Hazlemere Parish Council and Scientists Warning Europe and Professor Dave Goulson, University of Sussex
