How is Nutrient Neutrality impacting developments and housing supply?

Planning Webinar

About This Webinar

23 June 2022, 09:30 – 10:30

On 16 March 2022, the Government announced that an additional 27 catchment areas, affecting an additional 42 planning authorities, may now be subject to the requirement for nutrient neutrality. The requirements mean that all developments in the affected catchment areas will have to demonstrate that the nutrients from all surface water runoff and wastewater generated by a development must be less than or equal to the nutrients generated by the existing land use.

While this is an expansion of the catchment areas and councils affected, this is not a recent issue and some areas have been grappling with this issue for many years.

This is an increasingly important issue being played out across many sensitive catchments in the England and is, without doubt, a daunting issue for many council’s and developers faced with this additional administrative burden of trying to protect some of our most sensitive rivers and environments.

In this webinar Andrew Gore and Kevin Exley explain:

  • The legislative changes and the expectations of Natural England

  • What catchments and local authority areas affected

  • What you can do to understand the extent to which your developments are affected by nutrient neutrality requirements

  • The interventions you can put in place to keep developments happening
