New planning guidance about how to increase biodiversity in new development has been published for public consultation by the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service.

The new Biodiversity Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)  has been developed by Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire District councils to help developers and applicants maximise biodiversity on their sites.

The aim is to ensure that development increases biodiversity on the site by at least 10%, in line with the proposals anticipated in the upcoming Environment Bill.

Communities across Greater Cambridge are asked to comment on the new guidance. The consultation runs for eight weeks from now until Friday 17 September 2021
