Good for your business, good for the local economy

We can support your business requirements with offsite biodiversity net gain units that benefit the local area

The Gloucestershire Nature + Climate Fund aims to provide a simple transaction for Developers who require off-site biodiversity net gain units. We understand the need for good value and assurance that all the detail will be taken care of. Working with the GNCF makes good business sense. A nature-rich county brings so many health and wellbeing benefits to businesses and their employees. Using the GNCF, nature will be enhanced within the county of Gloucestershire, close to the site of development. The GNCF is delivering habitat creation and restoration within Gloucestershire’s mapped nature recovery network. This means that nature is being enhanced strategically within the county to ensure habitat connectivity and the expansion of the nature network across the county. As the GNCF is a not-for-profit organisation you can be assured of value for money when purchasing with us. Off-site BNG units can be purchased from GNCF as needed, agreeing terms and paying the balance once planning permission is granted. We will liaise with the Local Planning Authority to take care of the legal aspects and the GNCF will ensure that the BNG units are delivered, monitored and reported on, so you don’t have to. We follow the CIEEM, IEMA, CIRIA (2019) good practice principles for development, the latest guidance from Defra, and knowledge share with a country-wide BNG community of practice. The GNCF aims to provide excellence in off-site BNG delivery, and your business can be proud to deliver through us.
