The sixth event in our Bitesize Webinar series.
GHA member Bioregional joined us with their expertise on how to asses the potential implications of spatial strategies for development, including spatial carbon modelling for proposed new allocations.
All local planning authorities have a legal duty to address the climate and ecological crisis and to contribute towards the UK’s legally binding net-zero target for 2050. In practice, this means taking bold steps to achieve zero emissions from new buildings and adopting policies that drive drastic and rapid emissions reductions from transport, energy and land-use.
As Local Plans set out the vision for future development in a borough, they are key to ensuring that any land-use changes, or new development that happens – from homes and offices to transport infrastructure – results in the least amount of greenhouse gas emissions possible, whilst enabling economic growth and addressing housing need.
Discover the spatial implications of developing Zero Carbon Local Plans: Modelling the carbon from proposed growth.
This is a follow on from the webinar: why we need Zero Carbon planning policies and what are the powers that Local Authorities have to create them.
