Landscape scale biodiversity net gain initiative creating >1,000* biodiversity units for sale.
Strategically located in the Cambridge Nature Network and buffering the Roman Road SSSI, this initiative will provide significant environmental benefits.
This is an active habitat bank, with habitat works already conducted across approx. 70 ha and a comprehensive implementation and monitoring framework in place with Greater Cambridge Shared Planning, such that biodiversity units are available for immediate allocation.
The entire scheme will generate over 1,000 biodiversity units, alongside contributing to other ecosystem services including community access to nature, improved air and water quality and carbon sequestration.
Developers can secure biodiversity units for the following habitat types:
- neutral grassland
- mixed scrub
- broadleaved woodland
- various native hedgerow types
The site is located approx. 5 miles to the southeast of Cambridge City and 2 miles south of Fulbourn, within South Cambridgeshire.
