For the purposes of the Home Quality Mark (HQM), the development footprint consists of:
The site, considered to be the land enclosed by the boundary of the HQM assessment, and includes any land used for buildings, hardstanding, landscaping, site access or where construction work is carried out (or land being disturbed in any other way). It also includes any areas used for temporary site storage and buildings. If it is not known exactly where buildings, hardstanding, site access, temporary storage and buildings will be located, it must be assumed that the development footprint is the entire development site.
- There is an indirect impact on biodiversity, including but not limited to the Zone of Influence, and
- Land being used to compensate for impacts, either on the site or outside it as a biodiversity offset.
