The Strengthening the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme: A new approach to developer charges consultation paper provides the relevant background on proposed changes to aspects of the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme, sets out the proposals and rationale for the changes, and poses focus questions for consultation.
The Biodiversity Conservation Fund Charge System replaced the Biodiversity Offsets Payment Calculator on 17 October 2022. The new Charge System will be used to determine the amount a proponent may pay into the Biodiversity Conservation Fund to meet their biodiversity offset obligation.
The Biodiversity Conservation Trust is responsible for administering the new Charge System. For more information about the Charge System, including how to request a quote, please visit the Biodiversity Conservation Trust website.
