The consideration of biodiversity matters is an important part of the determination of a planning application and is guided by various national, regional and local policies.
If you intend to submit a development proposal to us, contact us at the pre-application stage and we will be able to tell you what biodiversity information, surveys and assessments you should provide. This is part of a paid pre-application advice service
Other Biodiversity and Landscape information and evidence can be found on the Planning Strategy evidence base web page
