For details, go here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/biodiversity-metric-3-for-local-authority-planners-registration-170269888821 An event for planners to learn more about Biodiversity Metric 3 and how to interpret its outputs
Biodiversity Metric 3 is a biodiversity accounting tool that can be used to calculate losses and gains for terrestrial and/or intertidal habitats associated with a development or other project. Biodiversity Metric 3 was released in July 2021; updating and replacing the beta Biodiversity Metric 2.0. It can be used now and is intended to underpin the Environment Bill’s provisions for mandatory biodiversity net gain.
This event is for Planners working within Local Planning Authorities to help better their understanding of Biodiversity Metric 3, including how to interpret outputs from this tool, and identify where errors may have occurred in completion of the tool. The event is hosted by PAS with training provided by Natural England.
This training is targeted at planners, not ecologists – CIEEM will be running separate, more detailed training for ecologists in due course.
Please use your work or .gov address when signing up. Please note that this event is for local authorities only.
