New partnership with Landmark Information Group

Map Impact, the pioneering environmental services data provider, is delighted to confirm that it has entered into an Agreement with Landmark Information Group to supply locational habitat data into Landmark’s BiodiversityCheck report, launched this week.

Legislation mandates that from January 2024 new property developments must deliver a minimum 10% improvement in biodiversity on a developed site in order to achieve planning consent. This requires an early assessment of existing site biodiversity, which Bristol based Map Impact can deliver through the innovative use of satellite derived data analysis and assessment delivered by remote
means that negates the need for an initial onsite visit.

Announcing the Agreement Richard Flemmings, CEO Map Impact commented: “We’re delighted to be supplying key data to Landmark under an Agreement that has enabled the parties to work in collaboration to bring this exciting new product to market. The application of new technology and methods has enabled us to develop some cutting-edge environmental reporting tools that will underpin new legislation – Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) – and lead to an improvement in biodiversity.”

Alex Wrottesley, Managing Director Landmark Geodata, said:

“BNG legislation has required us tobring a new product to market, which fulfils the early site assessment needs of developers, landowners and environmental professionals working within the planning process. To achieve a timely product development, we sought a supplier that could collaborate and respond to our very specific requirements, and the Map Impact team has exceeded all our expectations. Our client feedback from a number of test sites has been very favourable, and the product very well received.”

The Agreement between Map Impact and Landmark Information Group allows for ongoing collaborative development work around environmental risk reporting and the supply of digitalised environmental data.
