Energy and Sustainability
Sustainability and energy statements are a key part of planning applications for the majority of local authorities nationwide.
Our environmental teams work with the design team and planning consultant to develop outline strategies highlighting a range of sustainable design and construction measures, primarily addressing the sustainable management of resources, the protection and enhancement of the environment and the effective adaptation and mitigation of the development to climate change.
We begin by utilising our knowledge of the local authority’s development policies and strategies and carry out further vigorous research into each, we then assess the early stage design against all policies to ensure the scheme meets or exceeds all planning requirements.
We can provide both independent statements or a combined energy and sustainability statement.
