Local Nutrient Mitigation Fund: Call for Evidence and Expression of Interest

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has launched a Call for Evidence which is seeking to create a comprehensive view of the impact of nutrient neutrality advice on development. It invites all local planning authorities (LPAs) affected by nutrient neutrality to :

  • Provide evidence as to the impact of nutrient neutrality; and
  • Provide information and views about the scale of the impact, forthcoming solutions, and on-going work at a catchment level.

The Department is also interested in hearing from others who have evidenced proposals which could reduce nutrient pollution and unlock housing.

The expression of interest invites LPAs affected by nutrient neutrality to:

  • Submit costed expressions of interest for projects or strategies for delivering nutrient mitigation to unlock housing delivery in catchments of Habitats Sites affected by nutrient pollution.

The Call for Evidence and Expression of interest will close at 11:45pm on 24 May 2023. More information can be found here.
