The Sustainable Development Advice Note sets out our approach to sustainable development. It refers to the use of an online sustainability statement and energy statement which is completed through a carbon compliance tool called C-Plan. This is relevant for development of one or more homes, change of use or conversions, non-residential development, and non-building development (such as car-parking or landscaping).
For more information and to submit an assessment for your proposal please go to the Sustainability Planner website.
