Energy and Sustainability Statements

Planning Authorities require Energy and Sustainability Statements for almost all developments.

London leads the way with the adoption of the London Plan, creating an overarching policy for the 23 Boroughs to use as the backbone for their policies. The current requirement is a 35% reduction in CO₂ Emissions using energy hierarchy: Be Lean, Be Clean, Be Green.

Other local authorities have also implemented their own polices with varying requirements but mostly in the reduction of CO₂ Emissions through on site renewable or low to zero carbon technologies.

We will review your Local Authorities’ Planning Policy and consult with you to produce a comprehensive statement appropriate for the size of the development. Our in-house Energy Assessors can provide you with advice on how your development needs to comply with both the local planning policy and the building regulations.
