Solutions

There are no quick, easy answers when it comes to protecting the natural environment for future generations.

At Middlemarch, we adopt a bespoke, solutions-based approach that carefully balances the needs of clients and the environment so that everyone can see and feel the value in nature.

Here’s a few ways our natural environment consultants can help you to make informed decisions that work for you and the natural world.

Biodiversity Net Gain

The Environment Act 2021 requires all new developments in England to deliver a 10% net gain in biodiversity. In simple terms this means delivering projects that leave biodiversity in a measurably better state.

Middlemarch employs some of the UK’s leading Biodiversity Net Gain practitioners. We can support you in creating and implementing a strategy for Biodiversity Net Gain to meet all mandatory requirements, spanning baseline assessments and metric calculations to high quality habitat design and creation that compliments your project and supports local and national nature recovery targets.

It is not always possible to achieve Biodiversity Net Gain with a development site. Middlemarch has extensive experience in identifying and negotiating offsetting solutions which, if well designed and located, often result in great gains for biodiversity.

Nature-based solutions

At Middlemarch, we passionately believe that solutions inspired and supported by nature will provide the biggest environmental, social and economic benefits. The concept of Ecosystem Services, the many and varied economic and wellbeing benefits that can be derived from healthy ecosystems, sits at the heart of our approach.

Nature-based solutions make sound commercial sense, but there’s no simple, off-the-shelf approach to finding the right nature-based solutions for your business and your location.

That’s why our nature-based solutions experts will work with you from the earliest stages of your project to understand the environmental opportunities and constraints associated with your project and to hard-wire nature-based solutions into your thinking.

Nature-based solutions are evolving continually in response to ongoing research and our team continue to operate at the forefront of emerging ideas, covering Ecosystem Services such as biodiversity enhancement, nutrient neutrality, carbon sequestration, water neutrality, health and wellbeing.

A landowner, developer, utility or local authority looking to address a business challenge by using nature-based solutions?

Been tasked by a national agency or local authority with making sure your project meets planning conditions such as carbon or nutrient zero?

Want to talk to one of our consultants about how nature-based solutions can deliver bottom-line benefits for your project, for example through cost and energy savings or higher sales values?

Habitat design and creation

Middlemarch has a strong track record of designing and implementing high-quality habitat design and creation projects throughout the UK. We believe that any project or development provides a perfect opportunity to enhance biodiversity and provide other environmental benefits

Not only will this make the greatest contribution to protecting nature, habitat design and creation will also help you to meet your environmental and mandatory obligations, deliver biodiversity net gain, offset your carbon footprint and provide long-term, sustainable value for your project.

At Middlemarch, we undertake habitat design and creation at any scale, from green roofs and swales in residential homes to restoring whole wetlands out of gravel workings and even landscape-wide rewilding.
