Ecology compensation

The term ‘ecology compensation’ refers to:

'Measures taken to make up for the loss of, or permanent damage to, biological resources through the provision of replacement areas. Any replacement area should be similar to or, with appropriate management, have the ability to reproduce the ecological functions and conditions of those biological resources that have been lost or damaged.'

Ref The HS2 London-West Midlands Environmental Statement, published by the Department for Transport in November 2013.
