1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q45. Should a new policy require a significant increase in the use of renewable and low carbon energy generation?

Yes, a new policy should require significant increase in the use of renewable energy and it is preferable that such a policy is biased towards local grid connected renewable generation at each development (or very nearby) with battery storage to optimise.

Yes, particularly for incorporating solar PV in the construction of the buildings and for social and affordable housing.

Should a new policy require a significant increase in the use of renewable and low carbon energy generation? (currently 10% for 1-9 dwellings and 15% for 10 and more dwellings). An increase to 20% and 40% would be preferable.

most economical delivery of renewable and low carbon energy generation may not always be on site and requirement may compromise delivery of other required infrastructure.

Do not support an increase in the use of renewable and low carbon energy generation. Any local requirements for the sustainability of buildings should reflect the Government guidance on planning for climate change as set out in paragraph 150b of the framework.

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.

We support this, in the appropriate places. In the case of solar farms, we would urge the Council to look for opportunities to make use of urban roof space before ecologically or agriculturally important land.
