What’s the problem?
Climate and biodiversity crises – UK is bottom 10% globally and worst G7 nation for biodiversity
loss. Nature is key to mitigating and adapting to climate change, and supporting health and
wellbeing.
Twin crises present environmental, social and economic impacts and risks. Economics of
Biodiversity, Dasgupta Review (2021):
“Our economies, livelihoods and well-being all depend on our most precious asset: Nature”
Approach over past 70 years focus on nature conservation: preserving pockets of nature. Hasn’t
stopped decline  need to move towards nature restoration and nature recovery:
‘Bigger, better, more, more joined up’
(Lawton Report, 2010)
local.gov.uk/pas
Overarching NRN strategic ambition
NRN is a national network of wildlife-rich places, connecting
across urban, rural and coastal landscapes, recovering nature at
scale, benefiting people and nature.
Establishing a Nature Recovery Network:
• Enhances, restores and expands existing wildlife sites
• Complements and connects sites through wildlife corridors and
stepping stones, buffering zones of sustainably managed land
• Provides ecosystem benefits such as carbon capture, climate
resilience, flood management, improved air and water quality,
pollination, sustainable resources
• Enables access to and enjoyment of nature – benefitting health
and wellbeing
local.gov.uk/pas
Why is it important for local authorities?
For local authorities, nature recovery links to a range of agendas:
• Addressing the climate and biodiversity emergencies
• Flood resilience and drought management
• Mental and physical health and wellbeing
• Green infrastructure
• Access to greenspace and nature
• Energy efficiency
• Improving air and water quality
• Providing healthy soil that supports sustainable food production
• Thriving wildlife, including services like pollination
• Secure livelihoods and the basis of a healthy economy
• Place-making
local.gov.uk/pas

LNRS and the role of supporting authorities
- What are they and what do they mean for
you?
23 May 2023
Andy Holden, Defra
What are LNRSs?
• A new system of spatial strategies for nature,
introduced in the Environment Act 2021.
• There will be 48 LNRSs that cover all of England, with no
gaps or overlap.
• They will make use of existing partnerships with local
authorities, landowners, stakeholders, NGOs, businesses,
charities, community groups etc, to write a local strategy
that is collaborative and locally-led.
• Strategy preparation will be led by a responsible
authority – local authorities appointed by Defra to lead
the LNRS for their area, aided by supporting authorities.
• Developed with support and guidance from Defra,
Natural England, Environment Agency and Forestry
Commission, with funding to responsible authorities to
deliver this new burden.
• Each LNRS will:
• agree priorities for nature’s recovery
• map the most valuable existing areas for nature
• map specific proposals for creating or
improving habitat for nature and wider
environmental goals
• Key part of a suite of new measures – including
biodiversity net gain and legally binding targets – created to
help reverse nature’s ongoing decline
• Need to target our efforts where they will have the most
impact, and help connect & expand existing areas of
importance
• Nature and “nature-based solutions” – drawing together
and coordinating actions from existing plans and strategies,
and proposing what more should be done
• Providing a common focus for action across the public,
private and voluntary sectors
• Biodiversity net gain
• Duty on public authorities
• Integrate opportunities for nature recovery into the
planning system.
• Public funding and private green finance
• Voluntary action
• Propose action, deliver, review & update – to track what’s
done and keep renewing our ambition every 3-10 years
Why are they important?
• Appointed to lead the LNRS for an area by the
Secretary of State
• Local leadership, knowledge and expertise,
underpinned by a national framework of
regulations, guidance and support
• 48 provisional responsible authorities appointed
who must: prepare > publish > review >
republish their LNRS
• Regulations include rules on how to do these
things to promote consistency and minimum
standards
• Not prescriptive – about how responsible
authorities must work with others to create
strategies with collective support to create
foundations for joint delivery
Responsible authorities
• Regulations create the role of “supporting authority”
and say how responsible authorities must work with
them
• Supporting authorities are:
• Other local planning authorities (including
National Park Authorities) in the Strategy area
• Natural England for all LNRSs
• Why are they needed?
• To make sure LNRSs dovetail with the planning
system – don’t want conflicting steers for the
same piece of land. LNRSs will identify areas for
nature recovery for Local Plans; Local Plans will
help LNRSs understand which areas of land are
earmarked for other uses
• So that the LNRS reflects LPA thinking on
delivery of BNG
• To provide a different point of view &
constructive challenge
• NE will provide support and advice, and encourage
consistency and join-up
Supporting authorities
What’s the role?
• No requirements on the supporting authorities… but very good reasons to
get involved
• Responsible authorities must:
• take reasonable steps to involve supporting authorities
• share information with them
• have regard to their opinions
• seek agreement to consult
• seek agreement to publish
• Regulations geared to promote early and frequent collaboration – best
route to getting LNRSs which all parties are happy with and to avoid delays
• Issues should be flagged early and informally where possible. Formal
concerns should still be resolved locally but can be escalated where this
has not proved possible
• Responsible & supporting authorities should think ahead for sign off
• So that LNRSs are useful for you
• You’ll have to “have regard” to LNRSs –
Government preparing advice on how
LNRSs will inform Local Plans
• Making sure LNRSs are consistent with
Local Plans will make his much easier
• Enable LNRSs to be a tool to help meet
your own commitments and ambitions –
including BNG
• Influencing what gets proposed where,
and improving access to resources to
help get it done
Why get involved?
What to expect (1)
• Everywhere is different – different starting points and
different relationships between local authorities
• Some responsible authorities have been waiting for their
formal appointment, some are forging ahead
• Statutory guidance creates a preparation process…
How LNRSs are prepared
What to expect (2)
• Responsible authorities will need to plan
engagement early – both with supporting
authorities and others
• They will also need to think about project
governance and how they plan to oversee
the work
• Many of you will be aware who the
responsible authority is likely to be for your
area – everyone will know soon
• Good relationships between responsible
and supporting authorities are essential –
for preparation, delivery and future visions
…so make sure you have strong foundations
• Lots of past experience to build on, but it’s a
new process and we’re keen to work together
collectively to overcome challenges and make
the most of the opportunity

Partnership – Which existing partnerships do you participate in?
Utilise what is already there, build on existing good work, limit
meeting fatigue and facilitate closer cooperation amongst the groups.
Working with one of our London partnerships, Parks for London, we have
already held our first conference to discuss LNRS and BNG, in its wider
policy context, this April:
67 attendees representing 40 organisations
Representing Local Authority parks professionals, ecologists and planners,
along with other sector partners
Become a LERC partner (if you are not already)… GiGL for those in
London
• How does this align with other priorities… climate adaptation/access to
nature
• This will help pull together strategic biodiversity priorities
• LNRS will be here to guide and support the preparation/review of Local
Plans
• Do you know if your current Local Plan proposals will result in
Biodiversity net loss or onsite gain?!
• Do you know where your Biodiversity enhancement/creation opportunity
areas are?
Next steps/guidance for supporting authorities in Greater
London
• If you have recently updated your Biodiversity Action Plans,
don’t worry! LNRS will complement it now and provide
future structure.
• If you have an old Biodiversity Action Plan, LNRS will
provide structure for the new one… Nature Recovery Action
Plan or BAP with a map!
BAP with a map… London Borough of Redbridge 2007 Biodiversity Action Plan
“Can we start allowing
areas to rewild naturally?
...Nature really does
know better than us”
26/ Increase biodiversity across
Hackney in line with the emerging
Local Nature Recovery Plan,
creating more wild areas across all
parks and green spaces
28/ Significantly reduce the use of
Glyphosate, and continue to explore
alternatives
29/ Follow the recommendations of the
emerging Green Infrastructure Strategy
where they relate to parks and green
spaces, including identifying
opportunities to connect parks and green
spaces together
We will be more
environmentally
sustainable
21/ Work towards becoming a Zero
Carbon service by 2031
22/ Aim to re-use more green waste
within parks and green spaces
27/ Eliminate all annual planting and
replace it with more sustainable and
drought tolerant planting schemes

  • 3. local.gov.uk/pas Agenda 1. Introduction Krista Patrick, PAS 2. What are Local Nature Recovery Strategies and what is the role of supporting authorities? Andy Holden, Defra 3. What support is available? Jenny Lake, Natural England Krista Patrick, PAS 4. Local authority perspective Francis Castro, GLA 5. Q&A All 4. Summing up and feedback Krista Patrick, PAS Finish at 11.30
  • 4. local.gov.uk/pas Planning Advisory Service (PAS) • PAS is part of Local Government family, Team of 11 • Funded by DLUHC to support English planning authorities (LPAs) • Wide programme, including in 2023/24: design, infrastructure levy, Local Plans, Environmental Outcome Reports & development management designation • Environmental planning, covering nutrient neutrality, nature recovery and biodiversity net gain
  • 5. local.gov.uk/pas We’re keen to find out: Q1. Have you attended a PAS event before? Please answer the polls – pop-up or in the chat
  • 6. local.gov.uk/pas What’s the problem? Climate and biodiversity crises – UK is bottom 10% globally and worst G7 nation for biodiversity loss. Nature is key to mitigating and adapting to climate change, and supporting health and wellbeing. Twin crises present environmental, social and economic impacts and risks. Economics of Biodiversity, Dasgupta Review (2021): “Our economies, livelihoods and well-being all depend on our most precious asset: Nature” Approach over past 70 years focus on nature conservation: preserving pockets of nature. Hasn’t stopped decline  need to move towards nature restoration and nature recovery: ‘Bigger, better, more, more joined up’ (Lawton Report, 2010)
  • 7. local.gov.uk/pas Overarching NRN strategic ambition NRN is a national network of wildlife-rich places, connecting across urban, rural and coastal landscapes, recovering nature at scale, benefiting people and nature. Establishing a Nature Recovery Network: • Enhances, restores and expands existing wildlife sites • Complements and connects sites through wildlife corridors and stepping stones, buffering zones of sustainably managed land • Provides ecosystem benefits such as carbon capture, climate resilience, flood management, improved air and water quality, pollination, sustainable resources • Enables access to and enjoyment of nature – benefitting health and wellbeing
  • 8. local.gov.uk/pas Why is it important for local authorities? For local authorities, nature recovery links to a range of agendas: • Addressing the climate and biodiversity emergencies • Flood resilience and drought management • Mental and physical health and wellbeing • Green infrastructure • Access to greenspace and nature • Energy efficiency • Improving air and water quality • Providing healthy soil that supports sustainable food production • Thriving wildlife, including services like pollination • Secure livelihoods and the basis of a healthy economy • Place-making
  • 9. local.gov.uk/pas What do we hear from local authorities? Linking approach to BNG and LNRS, and to wider corporate priorities Resourcing, clarity and certainty of funding How the BNG national credits scheme will work The viability of going over 10% BNG BNG monitoring and enforcement Timeliness of and need for regulations, guidance and governance Evidence, skills and expertise Value of co- ordination and partnerships
  • 10. local.gov.uk/pas We’re keen to find out: Q2. What is your current level of awareness of LNRS? Please answer the polls – pop-up or in the chat
  • 11. local.gov.uk/pas We’re keen to find out: Q3. Has your authority started working with the responsible authority in your area on LNRS? Q4. How well prepared is your authority to support delivery of the LNRS at the moment? Please answer the polls – pop-up or in the chat
  • 12. March 2021 local.gov.uk/pas LNRS and the role of supporting authorities - What are they and what do they mean for you? 23 May 2023 Andy Holden, Defra
  • 13. What are LNRSs? • A new system of spatial strategies for nature, introduced in the Environment Act 2021. • There will be 48 LNRSs that cover all of England, with no gaps or overlap. • They will make use of existing partnerships with local authorities, landowners, stakeholders, NGOs, businesses, charities, community groups etc, to write a local strategy that is collaborative and locally-led. • Strategy preparation will be led by a responsible authority – local authorities appointed by Defra to lead the LNRS for their area, aided by supporting authorities. • Developed with support and guidance from Defra, Natural England, Environment Agency and Forestry Commission, with funding to responsible authorities to deliver this new burden. • Each LNRS will: • agree priorities for nature’s recovery • map the most valuable existing areas for nature • map specific proposals for creating or improving habitat for nature and wider environmental goals
  • 14. • Key part of a suite of new measures – including biodiversity net gain and legally binding targets – created to help reverse nature’s ongoing decline • Need to target our efforts where they will have the most impact, and help connect & expand existing areas of importance • Nature and “nature-based solutions” – drawing together and coordinating actions from existing plans and strategies, and proposing what more should be done • Providing a common focus for action across the public, private and voluntary sectors • Biodiversity net gain • Duty on public authorities • Integrate opportunities for nature recovery into the planning system. • Public funding and private green finance • Voluntary action • Propose action, deliver, review & update – to track what’s done and keep renewing our ambition every 3-10 years Why are they important?
  • 15. • Appointed to lead the LNRS for an area by the Secretary of State • Local leadership, knowledge and expertise, underpinned by a national framework of regulations, guidance and support • 48 provisional responsible authorities appointed who must: prepare > publish > review > republish their LNRS • Regulations include rules on how to do these things to promote consistency and minimum standards • Not prescriptive – about how responsible authorities must work with others to create strategies with collective support to create foundations for joint delivery Responsible authorities
  • 16. • Regulations create the role of “supporting authority” and say how responsible authorities must work with them • Supporting authorities are: • Other local planning authorities (including National Park Authorities) in the Strategy area • Natural England for all LNRSs • Why are they needed? • To make sure LNRSs dovetail with the planning system – don’t want conflicting steers for the same piece of land. LNRSs will identify areas for nature recovery for Local Plans; Local Plans will help LNRSs understand which areas of land are earmarked for other uses • So that the LNRS reflects LPA thinking on delivery of BNG • To provide a different point of view & constructive challenge • NE will provide support and advice, and encourage consistency and join-up Supporting authorities
  • 17. What’s the role? • No requirements on the supporting authorities… but very good reasons to get involved • Responsible authorities must: • take reasonable steps to involve supporting authorities • share information with them • have regard to their opinions • seek agreement to consult • seek agreement to publish • Regulations geared to promote early and frequent collaboration – best route to getting LNRSs which all parties are happy with and to avoid delays • Issues should be flagged early and informally where possible. Formal concerns should still be resolved locally but can be escalated where this has not proved possible • Responsible & supporting authorities should think ahead for sign off
  • 18. • So that LNRSs are useful for you • You’ll have to “have regard” to LNRSs – Government preparing advice on how LNRSs will inform Local Plans • Making sure LNRSs are consistent with Local Plans will make his much easier • Enable LNRSs to be a tool to help meet your own commitments and ambitions – including BNG • Influencing what gets proposed where, and improving access to resources to help get it done Why get involved?
  • 19. What to expect (1) • Everywhere is different – different starting points and different relationships between local authorities • Some responsible authorities have been waiting for their formal appointment, some are forging ahead • Statutory guidance creates a preparation process…
  • 20. How LNRSs are prepared
  • 21. What to expect (2) • Responsible authorities will need to plan engagement early – both with supporting authorities and others • They will also need to think about project governance and how they plan to oversee the work • Many of you will be aware who the responsible authority is likely to be for your area – everyone will know soon • Good relationships between responsible and supporting authorities are essential – for preparation, delivery and future visions …so make sure you have strong foundations • Lots of past experience to build on, but it’s a new process and we’re keen to work together collectively to overcome challenges and make the most of the opportunity
  • 22. March 2021 local.gov.uk/pas What support is available? 23 May 2023 Jenny Lake, Natural England Krista Patrick, PAS
  • 23. 23 Natural England role Supporting responsible authorities (RAs): • Lead agency on LNRS for the defra group • Lead for each LNRS in our NE area teams helping RAs to: • understand their responsibilities • how to make an LNRS • Inputting our local and technical expertise • Helping nationally based organisations including government departments engage with individual LNRSs A supporting authority to every LNRS: • Governance • Quality assurance • Cross boundary working and best practice sharing
  • 24. 24 PAS Support on LNRS Aim – to help Natural England understand how best to support and communicate with local authority audience on LNRS. Activities • Help to gather and share ideas / case studies / examples • Support the development and delivery of responsible authority and supporting authority workshops including sharing best practice and stakeholder engagement • Feeding key issues back to Government and Natural England and helping develop guidance including for LPAs • Develop ideas on how local authorities can deliver nature recovery activities integrating actions to address climate change, biodiversity loss and wellbeing.

Editor's Notes

  1. Good morning everyone and well give it a couple of minutes to let everyone on board.
  2. So lets start and a bit of an introduction and housekeeping. We receive a great level of interest in our events and todays is no exception with more than 500 signed up, from 248 local authorities including CC, CA, district and unitary councils as well as National Parks and some AONBs with XXX people on the call. So the focus of todays event is on LNRS and the role of supporting authorities - What are they and what do they mean for you – what are they and what do they mean for you. This is the first LNRS webinar we have delivered as part of our programme which is aimed primarily at officers from supporting authorities including planners, ecologists, environmental strategy and delivery, etc but will also be of interest for officers from responsible authorities particularly if they have not had a chance to hear from Defra and Natural England about LNRS yet and want to find out more. We understand that there might be some representatives from other organisations such as EA and FC so please understand the primary focus which is on local authority officer needs. So let me introduce myself, colleagues from PAS including Beccy and Roy, plus colleagues from Defra, Natural England, GLA and TBC the experts who are going to present to us. So before we start a few practicalities Over XXX people, but will try to make interactive as possible We have a lot of people in the ‘room’ so you are muted and cameras are off Questions via Slido - Passcode: 0mk789 Go to slido.com and enter this code: 568 8173 Scan the QR code Please ‘like’ or thumbs up questions you want to ask, rather than repeating the same question We may not get round to all your questions, but will look to add answers to our nature recovery FAQs page where relevant We will be using polls, so please answer these This event is being recorded, slides and the recording will be up on our website next week Feel free to use the chat to share what you’re doing on LNRS Technical issues – please post in the chat or email Rebecca: Rebecca.Moberly@local.gov.uk
  3. Beccy press record FINISH at 11:30 – we have included sufficient time for Q&A and will look to answer as many questions as possible.
  4. What PAS are doing? As many of you have attended a previous PAS event we don’t need to repeat this info …. Its worth highlighting that we are trying to be as joined up as possible – especially on the Env agenda BNG NR NN Remind people –it is likely that many of you will have already attended one of our events but we are continually seeing new sign ups.
  5. Polls 1 Beccy Remind people –it is likely that many of you will have already attended one of our events but we are continually seeing new sign ups. Poll 1: have you attended a PAS event before? Yes, I attended one of the previous PAS events on BNG and Nature Recovery No, but I have attended a PAS event on other planning issues in the past No, this is my first event with PAS
  6. Whats the big issue? The natural environment has an innate value that means we have a strong responsibility to protect it. It is fundamental to our health and wellbeing, is the foundation of a productive economy and provides us with attractive neighbourhoods and access to green spaces we can enjoy. Despite this the natural environment faces urgent and significant challenges in the UK and across the world. By tackling the biodiversity emergency, we will help nature recover and, at the same time, secure the health and economic benefits from an enhanced natural environment, for wildlife, for people and for our economy.
  7. What is the overarching strategic ambition? The UK governments 25 Year Environment Plan sets out what the UK will do to improve the environment, within a generation. By 2042, the ambition is to achieve high quality, accessible, natural spaces with increased biodiversity close to where people live and work, with a focus around the equal distribution of environmental benefits and resources to all. The Nature Recovery Network is a major commitment in the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan, enacted by the Environment Act 2021, and is the biggest nature restoration project in our nation’s history. PAS is working with NE on the NRN and LNRSs are really important for the NRN
  8. Why is nature recovery important for LAs? For all local authorities, nature recovery links to a range of agendas and council priorities including: addressing the climate emergency place-making green infrastructure access to greenspace and nature mental and physical health and wellbeing flood resilience improving air quality
  9. What feedback have we been getting from LAs? Refer to insights report We had a number of conversations with local authorities and brought together a number of insights and “asks”: Clarity and certainty of funding nature recovery Embedding nature into wider corporate priorities The value of coordination and partnerships The variety of frameworks and timetables The importance of regulations, guidance and governance Evidence skills and expertise
  10. Polls 2 Beccy
  11. Polls 3 and 4 Beccy launch Some have already started including the 5 that were pilots including on recruitment, governance, stakeholder mapping etc. Others waiting for confirmation RA status and funding.
  12. So first up were going to hear from Andy Holden at Defra who will provide an overview of LNRS and the role of supporting authorities – what are they and what do they mean for you? Over to Andy.
  13. What are LNRS?
  14. Why we need LNRSs
  15. v2
  16. Thanks Andy for a really useful overview of both the LNRS and the SA role. We can see that there are some questions already starting to appear on Slido so please keep these coming.
  17. Next up its Jenny Lake from the LNRS team at NE and myself on the type of support that is available.
  18. From August 2022 to end March 2023, Natural England (NE) commissioned the Planning Advisory Service (PAS) to lead on a project engaging with local authorities to raise awareness and understanding of: • The importance and value of recovering nature to help to address three of the biggest challenges we face: climate change, biodiversity loss and wellbeing. • Their new duties relating to nature recovery under the Environment Act 2021. • How Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS) help to establish the priorities for funding and partnership that will support delivery of the Nature Recovery Network (NRN). • How they can support partnership-based delivery. The project outputs included a series of webinars and the production of case studies and a local authority insights report which are available on our website. This project is now entering Phase 2, which will build on the engagement and lessons of Phase 1 – ensuring continued support and engagement with local authorities as mandatory LNRS and BNG requirements are rolled out this year. As well as supporting NRN delivery and LNRS implementation, it will also incorporate priorities from NE’s Strategic Plans for Places programme. Were currently developing our detailed project plan with NE colleagues for Phase 2 and current outputs include • Holding a series of webinars and workshops targeted at the needs of local planning authorities, responsible authorities and supporting authorities (this is the first in the series including supporting Defra/ADEPT regional workshops including producing FAQs) (April to May 2023) • Production of local authority wishlist of questions to inform DLUHC guidance and (April 2023) • Work with LNRS NE and Defra teams to support development and delivery of Responsible Authority network, regional webinars, workshops and seek feedback on issues arising. Were working with LNRS NE and Defra teams to scope out the type of support for supporting authorities and would be interested in your thoughts on what is needed. Our initial thoughts are including examples of early LNRS governance arrangements and helpful pointers, a case study in best practice for LNRS, a series of interviews covering emerging topics. Potentially look at delivering more detailed SA workshop as well as members LNRS webinar.
  19. Providing perspective of GLA as RA but also Hackney as SA and how they are looking at taking forward nature recovery projects and LNRS in their area.
  20. Hackney Council has not had a Parks and Green Spaces Strategy since 2013. In 2019 it was agreed that a new strategy was needed to guide the work of the Parks and Green Spaces Service over the next ten years. Consultation on the new strategy launched in November 2020 and ran until January 2021. In total 645 participants completed the online questionnaire, 307 took part in focus groups, polls or online methods and 15 responded by email or in phone surveys. During the 6 week consultation, 967 people participated in the consultation and the comments, data and insight they shared with us are analysed in this report.

  23. most of B, A, and C probably needs reading, possibly in that order. Boroughs should prepare… For ops / optimisation / and integration Because network should be protected / enhanced / managed given its multiple benefits GI strategy = evidence for Local Plan, use it to protect (designate) assets and create requirements (e.g. within site allocations or strategic policies)
  24. Lowest tier envisioned as ‘operational plans’ but GI strategy preparation can be bottom-up or top-down (or a mix of both) so that work already done does not go to waste. Where lowest tier plans already exist, GI strategy work might flag gaps to be addressed in future iterations. Preparation and review is always cyclical. Operational plans have distinct focus and concern (Local Urban Forest Plan = Maintaining and increasing canopy cover; Local Nature Recovery Plan = Establishing a coherent and resilient ecological network; Parks and Open Spaces = Creating a resilient network of accessible green spaces) GI strategies will reflect and inform other key local documents depending on stage of preparation: Link to transport strategy = where should walking and cycling routes be improved, and where are there works in which GI enhancements could be embedded GI strategy forms evidence for Local Plan review (already mentioned in first slide)
  25. So now we have 30 mins Q&A so please use Slido to submit your questions. You can either scan the QR code or the link that was sent out with joining instructions along with the passcode 0mk789 As mentioned previously we are interested to get a feel for what your needs are as a SA so that we can look to inform our Phase 2 support programme. In addition to submitting your own questions please use the voting to identify the questions you like to hear responses to. Beccy and Roy are busy in the background reviewing these and feeding these back to me to raise. Key issues raised at ADEPT regional workshops Mapping and inclusion of areas of biodiversity importance Link up with ELMS Long term funding post production incl production and review Review period  Link Land use framework Link BNG
  26. Poll 5 feedback So I would like to thanks our speakers from Defra, NE and GLA for their time and support today which is always really much appreciated. Were interested to hear from emerging practice in RAs working with SAs on LNRS and vice versa so let us know if there are examples you would be interested in sharing. We will be uploading slides to our website Adding relevant questions and answers to our FAQs Go to our website for examples and advice Bulletin will announce further news If want to get into detail BNG then we have a practitioner network a chance share info with other planners Many thanks for all your time and input today and look forward to catching up soon
