Sowerbys launches invaluable new homes webinar hero

A leading name when it comes to innovative estate agency, Sowerbys has announced its latest initiative, Sowerbys' Insights, a land and new homes specialist webinar series.

The quarterly free-to-attend webinar will offer an introduction to a variety of topics related to new home property development, featuring expert guest speakers and providing valuable insights.

Registration has opened for the debut session, Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) – "It's a whole new planning world", scheduled for February 29th at 11am until 11.30am.

With guest speakers, LanPro, attendees can hope to find answers to crucial questions ahead of a key change to planning laws surrounding biodiversity this year.

Biodiversity net gain, or BNG, ensures biodiversity is enhanced through development. New regulations came into force this month (February 2024) for major planning applications - and on April 2nd for non-major applications – which require developments to improve biodiversity by at least 10% against that lost through building.

Peter Hurrell, Land and New Homes Director at Sowerbys, said: "Sowerbys' Insights webinar series underscores our commitment to providing valuable and current insights into the ever-evolving landscape of land and new homes development.

“We believe in fostering knowledge-sharing and creating a platform for industry experts to connect with our audience.

“Biodiversity Net Gain is a crucial topic in today's planning environment, and we are excited to kick off the series with this impactful theme.

“We’ll be answering questions like ‘What is BNG and why do we need it?’ and ‘How will it affect applications / how to prepare for it?'

“Future webinars are in planning and we look forward to bringing a whole host of topics to the table from nailing developer branding to the importance of a show home.”
