Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) became mandatory for small developments on 2nd April 2024. In this webinar you will learn what is required for a landscape architect to be deemed competent and complete the Small Sites Metric.

Essentially, for residential development, a small site means a development with fewer than 10 houses on less than one hectare of land.

  • Know how to complete the Statutory Small Sites Metric (SSM) and Habitat Management and Monitoring Plan (HMMP) for small sites.
  • Know the competency requirements for the SSM and when a Landscape Architect can complete the process.
  • Be aware of the market for biodiversity units and the process for buying off-site units when BNG cannot be delivered on-site i.e. within the red line boundary of the planning application.
