Biodiversity Net Gain (Farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer)

5 May 2023

In the latest issue of Farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer magazine, Senior Associate, Annie Wills, has written an article about Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) and the Government's response to last years consultation which has further clarified how the proposals will work in practice.
