LI CPD Conference: Planning Reforms
28 Sep 2021
Day 3.4 Natural Soils & BS3882
Natural Topsoil has in recent years been overshadowed by a multitude of manufactured soils, this session will reintroduce the delegates to natural soils, where they sit within BS3882 – 2015, the intrinsic benefits of specifying a Natural Soil and what can be expected. In an environment of sustainability, carbon consciousness and climate change, natural soils could be an answer to some of these questions, especially as we consider longer term soil biology and the increasing importance of soil health.
