Biodiversity net gain (BNG) is a new piece of legislation that forces developers to contribute to nature recovery, by ensuring that biodiversity is left in a measurably better state, after a development than before. Where developers cannot deliver a 10% increase in biodiversity on their site, they must pay other landowners to create and improve habitats on their behalf. This has resulted in new opportunities for farmers to improve nature, benefit from their marginal/unproductive land, and make a profit while doing so.
