Nutrient Neutral has been working with landowners and Natural England since 2020
…to research and develop a methodology for the closure, or modification, of dated farmyards in order to reduce their nutrient export and in doing so generate nutrient credits for developers to purchase, resulting in permission being granted.
Our first site was agreed in August 2022, in Herefordshire, and now, with all the legal documents in place, this is providing much needed credit to allow housing developments to go ahead.
We now have several other farmyard assessments in progress in other affected regions across the country.
