Yes, a new policy should aspire to zero carbon new development that is situated within Flood Zone 1 and has no dependency upon flood defences. Need to update the SFRA.

Sustainability lies at the heart of our Neighbourhood Plan and we have been working with Centre for Sustainable Energy to look at local contributions to tackling climate change and responding to the need for a low carbon approach. Agree that planning policies will need to demonstrate how they contribute to meeting low carbon targets and demonstrate a commitment to reducing emissions, including minimising energy demand through good design, utilising renewable and low carbon energy generation.

We would strongly support such a policy. We would recommend that such a policy also considers the role of development in climate change adaptation and resilience.

Any changes to policy must be considered in the context of building regulations and national technical standards, and have consideration to the likely impact on the deliverability and viability of development. For residential development, any policy for net zero carbon could have a significant impact on schemes’ ability to deliver affordable housing for example.
