Buildings for Biodiversity Seminar
Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2018, 09:30 - 16:30
Venue: Loughborough Town Hall
This one day seminar is aimed primarily at raising awareness of how important both rural and urban buildings and their surrounding landscapes are to the survival of key species and offers a great opportunity for planners and others to gain CPD evidence. Neighbourhood Planning groups are able to include their own policies around Biodiversity and the design of new buildings and developments within their area.
Through its speakers and workshops with participants, this event aims to show you how the built environment can contribute to green infrastructure. It aims to highlight why species consideration is important within potential built and brownfield landscapes and what enhancement may be required to fulfil planning consent for such sites. You will gain knowledge of understanding basic requirements of key species and how they may interact with development; the importance of species and their early consideration; how to accommodate biodiversity into planning and gain an understanding of laws and policies protecting key species.
