Advice for Planners and Developers
The UK-GBC Green Building Guidance Task Group has created these documents to help Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) and the new neighbourhood forums to understand sustainability issues, to ensure they achieve a balance between requiring robust sustainability standards but also ensuring development remains viable.
The documents are also intended to be useful to developers, who can use the same set of questions when developing planning applications. The advice is intended for use at the local plan making and outline application stage of the planning.
The documents also signpost to places where planners, developers and neighbourhood forums can seek advice about specific issues and examples of good practice and case studies.
