As a Wildlife Trust Consultancy, making a positive contribution to the recovery of biodiversity in the UK is a core part of our ethos at Middlemarch. It is also becoming a key aspect of planning policy at both a national and local scale, and was recently given added weight through the inclusion of ‘biodiversity net gain’ within the revised National Planning Policy Framework. This was subsequently given a government mandate in the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s 2019 Spring Statement.
Middlemarch’s team of expert biodiversity consultants are able to provide support at all levels, spanning the enhancement of biodiversity through good design, on site implementation of creative habitat creation solutions and the design and implementation of off-site biodiversity offsetting solutions where required. We also have extensive experience of working with large corporations to maximise biodiversity contributions as part of sustainability and CSR initiatives.
Our biodiversity services include:
- Biodiversity Net Gain and Offsetting
- Habitat Design and Creation
- Green Infrastructure
- Building With Nature
- The Wildlife Trusts Biodiversity Benchmark
