With the Environmental Bill and Local Authority Planning Policies placing an onus on the need to mitigate, compensate and enhance effected habitats and ecology, there is an ever growing need to source suitable sites to meet ecological offset requirements, ensuring that a genuine ecological gain is delivered. .

Habitat Regeneration can see the potential to offer larger landed holdings for ecological offset schemes, enabling several stakeholders to buy in and support the development and ongoing management of the site. This approach can help to confer a more landscape scale approach to natural capital and helps to avoid small islands of habitat being created without the connectivity and scale to deliver actual ecological gain.

Habitat Regeneration has access to a number of land parcels within the South-East which are owned by Sister Companies within the Heathcote Holdings Group (Please see plan attached below). Likewise, as one of the largest agricultural contractors in Kent, the group has established relationships with landowners and farmers who are looking to incorporate private and public funded environmental schemes into their farm as a form of diversification.

Habitat Regeneration’s Services includes:

  • Sourcing suitable sites.
  • Developing schemes with ecologists.
  • Providing operational support.
  • Delivering and managing ecological offset plans.
