  • Biodiversity Net Gain Technical Advice Note
  • Biodiversity Net Gain Technical Advice Note Consultation Statement
  • The Kirklees Biodiversity Net Gain Technical Advice Note, approved on 29 June 2021, provides clarity for applicants on how to achieve biodiversity net gain through development within Kirklees and supports national and local legislation. It sets out clear guidance on how biodiversity should be considered throughout the development process, including the utilization of Defra's Biodiversity metric to demonstrate a 10% net gain in biodiversity which is due to be mandated by the Environment Bill.
