Nutrient Neutrality

What is nutrient neutrality and how is it impacting land development?

Excessive nutrient input including phosphates are damaging our water ecosystems. In response, Natural England have instructed local authorities in civic areas not to grant planning permission unless nutrient neutrality is achieved. Our experts share the solutions to progressing your land development project.

The nutrient neutrality issue is complex, requires collaboration with multiple stakeholders, and often solutions are site specific. At Stantec, we are proud to have the opportunity to draw on skills in water, catchment management, treatment, ecology, landscape, flood risk, planning, EIA and more to help you develop nutrient management strategies.
