The Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Natural Environment Partnership (the “NEP”) invites you to attend a half day workshop, including lunch, at the Gateway Conference Centre in Aylesbury on Friday 18 May 2018.
The workshop will feature presentations and practical sessions outlining the latest Government policy momentum towards environmental and biodiversity net gain and natural capital approaches; and will explore how Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes is and should be responding in the light of the expected levels and speed of housing and infrastructure growth.  
The session will also provide participants with the chance to explore how “biodiversity accounting” works in practice and to get involved in designing a workable scheme for Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes.
