BRN - Nutrient Neutrality

 

​Achieving Nutrient Neutrality in Brownfield Development 

13:00 BST on 19 October, Online webinar

 

Nutrient neutrality is a means of ensuring that a development plan or project does not add to existing nutrient burdens within a catchment or result in a net increase in nutrients received by sensitive habitats downstream. However, this has considerable implications for the planning and development of brownfield sites where it is often harder to provide the necessary mitigation onsite due to spatial constraints or the density of the development. 

In this webinar Simon and Wendy will outline the background to the nutrient neutrality issue, talk about the process of assessment and implications for inclusion of mitigation on site (with specific focus on brownfield sites), with discussion from the Local Planning Authority point of view, explanation of more strategic options, and how things are likely to develop in the next couple of years.  

Speakers:

  • Wendy Fergusson, Associate, Environment & Health, Ramboll
  • Simon Kennedy, Strategic Environmental Planning Manager, Partnership for South Hampshire

This webinar is for Brownfield & Regeneration Network members only. Learn about membership here.

15:00-16:30 GMT* on 2 November, online webinar

 

Building on the discussions from our Groundwater 2022 conference, which focused on updated approaches to the risk assessment & management of PFAS & other emerging contaminants in groundwater, this webinar will explore innovative strategies and new techniques for the remediation and management of these contaminants of increasing concern.

Bringing together a range of perspectives, both UK and international, this online session will explore the considerations and approach being taken for different PFAS-contaminated sites, including:

  • Key risk drivers, practical concerns, and other questions that often need to be addressed; 
  • Developing a robust CSM to best understand where PFAS is present, the source, and likely migration; 
  • Deciding the most appropriate response with available solutions and technologies

Speakers will be announced shortly.
