Biodiversity offsetting

Our biodiversity offsetting model is a last resort process where conservation activities compensate for biodiversity loss resulting from development in a way that can be measured. Such conservation activities can be tree planting, wildflower meadow creation and wetland creation and enhancements.

In Warwickshire, biodiversity offsetting is used to deliver effective, widespread biodiversity gain for the natural environment to minimise impacts from climate change by reconnecting existing wildlife areas. This allows species to move through Warwickshire, whilst also being easy and pragmatic for developers to understand and make good their losses.

We are currently looking for landowners to support this scheme. If you think you can help, email planningecology@warwickshire.gov.uk
