With biodiversity net gain soon to become a mandatory requirement for all new developments, now is the time to start carrying out calculations to ensure your site is achieving this.
Our calculator uses the approved Defra metric allowing you to manually enter habitats, distinctiveness and condition giving you an overall value in biodiversity units for the existing and the proposed site.

Please note: There will be an update to the biodiversity net gain calculator, that will be added to the site shortly. This will have an updated linear section and a new section that will allow you to alter the amount of biodiversity net gain required.
Anyone who has downloaded the calculator this year will automatically be emailed a copy of the new calculator.
