Natural England's Nutrient Mitigation Scheme for developers


If you want to build new housing within the Tees catchment area you may need to offset any excess nutrients that may be released and pollute the environment.

This guidance is for anyone who plans to build housing and wants to buy credits under Natural England's nutrient mitigation scheme to continue their planning application with the local planning authority.

This guidance will be superseded by formal guidance on GOV.UK on the 31 of March, but is provided here ahead of that date, to enable developers to prepare in advance. This guidance is supplemented by a Frequently Asked Questions Section which can be found on the Natural England website.
