Biodiversity enhancement and net gain are rising priorities for both business and society. We’re proud to offer a variety of ecosystem services across our UK sites that can help businesses BE nature positive.


Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) is an approach to development and land management that will leave the natural environment in a measurably better state than before.
As a result, BNG puts nature at the heart of planning by ensuring projects not only replace the biodiversity they are taking from the landscape but add a 10% net gain.

At Belmont, we provide BNG units that make a real difference. Our units are generated from our rewilding project just outside Bristol enabling regional business owners to meet new planning legislation in Bristol, North Somerset, BANES and South Gloucestershire. As an early provider of BNG in the South West, our units are registered and ready to buy.

How do we do this?

Our rewilding and rewetting project in North Somerset delivers BNG units and a vast biodiversity uplift through restored wetlands, natural woodland regeneration and wild flowers. As a regional provider across four LPAs and with multiple types of habitats, we are able to offer a wider variety of BNG units.

As experts in sustainable land management and habitat restoration, we monitor and manage your biodiversity offset within our local project for the whole 30-year term.

Why offset offsite?

Genuine biodiversity enhancement is the delivery of nature restoration at a scale that works for our natural world and that can be verified and trusted for the long term.

Habitats and wildlife communities often require connection and scale to be viable and this isn’t possible to deliver on the average development site. We believe that portioning green space for biodiversity into small areas within individual developments and leaving it in the care of people who may not be qualified, is a risk to both biodiversity and the integrity of the developer’s offset.

How do the units work?

We deliver units offsite on our rewilding project, taking the responsibility and the risk away from developers. This works because we’re best placed to do so, leaving developers to focus on the project and what they do best.

As a responsible landowner, we commit to monitoring the habitat for 30+ years, meaning our BNG units are 100% secure, 3rd party verified and risk-free. With a draft S106 agreement and a 30-year management plan, we can enable early engagement in the planning process.

Why Belmont?

For us, BNG is another way for us to deliver on restoration, regeneration and reconnection, ensuring nature recovery is led by experts and has the most impact possible.

Our BNG units are unique as they also provide powerful reputational and wider community benefits for education, volunteering and nature restoration, that demonstrate commitment to social and environmental responsibility to a developer’s full range of stakeholders.



Our units are available to purchase now for projects within Bristol, North Somerset, BANES and South Gloucestershire LPAs.




“The rewilding project at Belmont Estate is a great example of how a business can provide ecosystem services to help others be nature positive. I had the pleasure of being shown around the rewilding and rewetting site. What a project and a vision for offsetting and biodiversity enhancement.”


Carbon offsetting

We are working on a range of nature recovery projects to lock away carbon through peatland restoration and natural tree regeneration, plus in 2023 we’ll offer UK based carbon credits to individuals and businesses looking to lower their carbon footprint and achieve net zero targets by 2030.

As demand for carbon is expected to outreach supply by 2030, priority purchase of our carbon credits will be offered to our corporate partners before being available to others.

Biodiversity enhancement

Restoring and enhancing biodiversity is at the heart of our mission and the need has never been greater.

We’re working on projects to deliver nature restoration at scale, restoring biodiversity through rewilding, rewetting, peatland and woodland restoration for the benefit of climate and the community.

In 2023 we’ll be offering businesses and individuals with the objective of becoming nature positive, and who share our values and vision, the opportunity to purchase voluntary biodiversity credits, with priority allocation to our partners.


We are not a broker of nature or carbon solutions. Our nature restoration projects are our own, allowing us to guarantee their values and integrity.

Our land, our hands, our projects.
