Nutrient Neutrality



Nutrient pollution is a significant environmental concern in many parts of the country, according to Natural England. Increased levels of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus can affect the delicate ecosystem. This problem may be exacerbated by additional wastewater generated by upcoming housing developments.

This webinar covers how nutrient neutrality impacts planning applications and developments, how councils are applying legislation, and how mitigation measures can ensure nutrient neutrality is achieved. Phil Courtier, Director of Place at South Norfolk Council, provides an overview of the issue of nutrient neutrality in Norfolk and its impact on the region. In addition to outlining the work done by the Norfolk Local Authorities in collaboration with other organizations such as Anglian Water to reduce the burden of nutrient neutrality on the development sector, he also presents plans for mitigation and environmental credits. Ray Winney, Construction Director of Orbit Homes East, then discusses the challenges that nutrients and neutrality pose to developers. William Mackveley, General Manager at ST Connect, finishes with a discussion on how they have dealt with this issue with clients in the construction industry.

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
