The Good Homes Alliance has commissioned a project to better support local authorities and project teams in the evaluation of overheating risk in new residential planning applications, and to raise awareness of possible design solutions.

The guidance is intended for use at the pre-planning and planning application stages of construction projects. The aim is to help planners and designers to spot potentially high-risk designs, enabling informed dialogue and helping to identify solutions at an early stage if needed, for everyone’s benefit. The guidance will be available in Spring 2019.

We would like to hear from local authorities and project teams about the type of guidance they would find most useful, and the appropriate level of detail. The research team have created some short surveys which should take 5-10 minutes to complete, and would be grateful for your participation.

The deadline for responses is 5pm on 14th December 2018.
