CIEEM Webinar – Biodiversity Issues: What Planners Need to Know

This is the first in a series of three webinars designed specifically to help planners and those responsible for planning decisions feel more confident in addressing biodiversity issues in the development planning system. Good biodiversity-related decision making can reduce the likelihood of problems and confrontation and avoid unnecessary delays to the decision-making process.

Topics covered will include compliance with legislation and policy, the importance of the Mitigation Hierarchy, the value of including biodiversity considerations in good design and the role of biodiversity enhancement, including biodiversity net gain.
