Rebecca Pow MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
The Environment Bill, which is due to become law before this event takes place, will change the relationship between the built and natural environments.
This event will explore how the new Environment Act will drive Government policy over the coming years, and 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%.
We will be joined for this session by Rebecca Pow MP, the minister responsible for the Bill, who will set out the Government’s post legislative vision and the measures contained in the new act are put into policy and practice.
Following a brief presentation, the Minister will take questions from the chair and from the floor.
