Welcome to NCPTool.com

The Natural Capital Planning Tool (NCPT) is a free site assessment tool developed specifically for the planning context. The NCPT allows the indicative but systematic assessment of the likely impact of proposed plans and developments on Natural Capital and the ecosystem services it provides to people such as recreational opportunities, air quality regulation and climate regulation.

The NCPT was designed as a fit-for-purpose Excel tool which can be applied by non-specialists and in a short period of time; acknowledging the time- and resource constrains planners and developers face in everyday practice. NCPT assessments are also available as a service directly by the tool developer.

The tool developer and project partners believe that the NCPT will help developers and planners to create more sustainable places for people and wildlife, whilst at the same time delivering the housing and infrastructure the country needs.
