Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) is expected to become mandatory in England when the Environment Bill becomes law later this year. Many local planning authorities and developers are already introducing policies to support BNG delivery.

What longer term research is needed, over and above monitoring, to provide evidence of this policy’s impact? Legislation is not enough. We need evidence of its effectiveness.
