The MOJ submitted an application for outline planning permission to Buckinghamshire Council, the local planning authority, on the 21st June. The Biodiversity Net Gain assessment methodology, supporting calculations and plans have been submitted as part of the application for the development.

The full details of our biodiversity plans will therefore be available to view, as part of our applications suite of documents, in due course via Buckinghamshire Council’s planning portal.
