Biodiversity net gain initiative creating c.300 biodiversity units for sale.
95 ha of former organic arable land immediately adjoining the Deben Estuary SPA plus a further 22 ha of floodplain grassland and other semi-natural habitats. The intention is to allow the former cultivated land to develop into a natural grass/scrub mosaic while the floodplain habitats will be enhanced through re-wetting and the creation of new inter-tidal habitat.
Developers can secure biodiversity units for the following habitat types:
- Acid grassland
- Floodplain grassland
- Inter-tidal mud and saltmarsh
The site is located approx. 1 mile east of the village of Martlesham within the East Suffolk LPA.
