CAVAT is a valuation method for publically-owned trees and whereas I 
understand its original purpose (and attended one of Chris' earlier 
presentations along with occasional updates and his last seminar), it seems 
now that there is a trend emerging for it to be used to generate cash.  
The significant ecological and environmental value of trees is beyond 
dispute, but there is of course a potential conflict of interest in that an 
LPA could be seen to be agreeing to the loss of trees on cash return basis.
I don't have any indication from the few encounters I have had that there is 
any profound thinking behind this in terms of the potential repercussions and 
escalation.

Good afternoon 

I am doing some with with colleagues on natural capital and net environmental 
gain and I remembered the work done at the elephant and castle redevelopment 
using cavat to calculate the on and off site compensation. 

Given all the current press on net gain and “Nat cap”, this scheme was really 
at the vanguard. 

Does anyone have a report or more information?

Thank you
