Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
Your business may need to create a site biodiversity action plan (BAP) as a condition of a planning consent, or to comply with legal requirements for a protected species.
You may also want to create a plan if your business has an environmental management system. See our guideline: Environmental management systems and environmental reports
Your business BAP should identify options for how best to protect the priority species identified at your site. It should include the baseline biodiversity conditions, objectives, targets, a work plan and monitoring to check progress.
You may need to employ a professional ecologist to help you draw up your site BAP. You can search a directory of ecologists on the Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (IEEM) website.
