Local Plan Evidence Update - Biodiversity Net Gain Study pdf icon PDF 197 KB

This report seeks the Committee’s endorsement of the Biodiversity Net Gain Study (BNG) as a high-level baseline study, forming part of the evidence base to inform the Local Plan update (when it resumes). In particular, the BNG study informs the spatial application of the 10% net gain metric (when this is finalised in November 2023) through development management decisions. The BNG study will also help engagement with developers and nature recovery stakeholders, to deliver habitat creation/improvement projects in the right places, inform the preparation of an Arun Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) and cross boundary nature recovery planning work e.g. emergent West Sussex County Nature Recovery Network.

This report seeks the Committee’s agreement that the proposed Littlehampton Economic Growth Area (LEGA) Study update should exclude work on the West Bank Strategic Allocation elements of the Study and focus the study brief on the riverside opportunities and the area between Climping beach and the West Bank. The study would, therefore, aim to complement what might happen on the West Bank through the existing LEGA study and Strategic Allocation in the adopted Arun Local Plan 2018.
