Yesterday our very own Dean Swann presented at the The Home Builders Federation #HBF conference in Birmingham on the topic of Nutrient Neutrality. Thousands of homes are being caught up with this issue, which continues to expand across the nation as Natural England determine further Habitats Sites in need of protection. Brookbanks are proud to hold the NE “Gold Standard” for nutrient assessments and mitigations strategies, navigating the guidance to unlock development for our clients across the country.

We also provide CPD sessions to spread up to date knowledge and understanding of the issue as it develops.

Dean says “This ever evolving situation in our Industry today, continues to frustrate development. There is however hope in both changing legislation and more sophisticated assessments and nutrient neutrality solutions.”


Get in touch with Dean Swann to find out how we can help you.
