Rebecca Pow MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
As work continues on the Government’s flagship Environment Bill ahead of its re-introduction to Parliament in the next session, this event will explore the Government’s vision for this fresh piece of legislation.
It will look in particular at the mandate for “net gain in biodiversity through the planning system” – a requirement that development should increase biodiversity by 10% – and the new responsibilities that this will confer on the range of built environment stakeholders.
We will be joined for this session by Rebecca Pow MP, the Minister responsible for the Bill.
Following a brief presentation, the Minister will take questions from the chair and from the floor.
