The proposed policies relating to net zero carbon new development, specific percentage increase in use of renewable energy, and specific percentage decrease in carbon emissions (or off-site mitigative payments) may be overly prescriptive in terms of the application of standards and specific approaches that might be supported to achieve such standards.

If policies are to be pursued that seek to reduce carbon generation, care will have required in its application to retirement housing for older people. Such developments have their own construction and management constraints that may impact on their ability to meet lower thresholds. Viability will also be a factor as a result. The impact of lower carbon generation will be different to that of conventional housing and needs to be considered accordingly.

Best way to achieve low carbon impact is to build houses close to the biggest source of employment which is Bristol.
