  1. Last month, Defra published its "3.0 Metric" - the latest method by which biodiversity net gain will be calculated.  Some details have been published on the LI website here: https://www.landscapeinstitute.org/news/biodiversity-net-gain-update-biodiversity-metric-3-0-be-involved/

    This article also includes a call-out for members to get involved in a new advisory group on BNG - thanks to all those that have responded so far. 

    Any views on the 3.0 Metric welcome!

  2. Urban Design London are looking for built environment experts.  Details below:

    Urban Design London
    Design Review Panel Refresh

    We’re looking to appoint a diverse group of built-environment experts including landscape and
    environmental design professionals to better address the key role the natural environment
    plays in creating healthy, resilient, and sustainable places.

    Our refreshed, refocused panel will be made available to local authorities to fill any gaps they
    may have in expertise. We are keen to build a diverse panel and are seeking to recruit people
    from a range of ethnic backgrounds.

    Our new recruits will benefit from training and mentoring to ensure they grow into the role and
    become future design champions. We are also keen to hear from candidates who are less
    experienced in participating in Design Review.

    We pay panel members for their contribution and anticipate their time commitment to be 3 to
    4 half days per year.
    Payment is £250 for a half day for panel members. The panel chair will
    be paid £500.

    If you would like to apply, please send a one-page CV and a cover letter clearly stating your
    skills, expertise and experience in shaping great places, and what you believe makes a good
    design review to
    info@urbandesignlondon.com. You can email us if you have any queries
    about the application.

    Applications to be received by 1st September
