The impact of Biodiversity Net Gain on the planning and development sectors across Wiltshire was the focus of a seminar hosted by law firm Thrings this week.

More than 30 of the region’s planning experts, ranging from developers, planners and architects, to local councils, solicitors and consultants, were in attendance at Thrings’ Swindon office on Tuesday, 20 November.

Organised by the Royal Town Planning Institute's Wiltshire Young Planners, the event covered a range of BNG-related topics, including how the concept affects landowners, developers and planning authorities, with Rebecca Stanton and Harvey Davies from the Thrings planning and environment team speaking at the event alongside Mark Campbell of DLP Consultants and Aaron Smith of Master Land and Planning.

Hollie Sturgess, chair of the RTPI Wiltshire Young Planners, said: “Encouraging Biodiversity Net Gain is an ever-growing priority for everyone, from local communities to national governments, and it was clear from today’s event that it is something the planning world is eager to learn more about.

“I want to thank our speakers for sharing their expertise with the audience and to Thrings for hosting and sponsoring our event today, which has brought together so many people from across the sector to discuss this important topic.”

Kiran Maher, solicitor in the Thrings planning and environment team and co-organiser of the event, added: “The responsibility for developers and local authorities to deliver a positive contribution to nature has never been greater and it was good to see the next generation of planners in attendance today taking the issue so seriously.

“It has been great to have organised this seminar with the Wiltshire Young Planners and look forward to the prospect of working with them on future events.”
