Planning authorities across the UK increasingly require any planning application for a proposed development to include a comprehensive Sustainability Statement. We offer professional, thorough and clear sustainability statements which can play a significant role in ensuring planning consent for a site, and in convincing planning officers that issues of environmental performance have been considered and are being systematically addressed.
Many authorities also set a requirement for a certain proportion of energy for the development to be produced by low- and zero-carbon technologies. We prepare sustainability statements covering these key issues and all other relevant considerations.
We tailor the statement specifically to match the requirement of the relevant local planning authority, demonstrating compliance with their Local Development Framework policies throughout. Our statements have a track record of acceptance by planning departments across the UK.
