Gleeson does not consider that a policy aspiring to zero carbon development is justified, and compliant with national policy. Given the level of infrastructure required to deliver the Strategic Allocations, along with affordable housing it’s unclear delivery of zero carbon homes is, or will be in the near future viable without significantly compromising the delivery of other required infrastructure and therefore should not be a priority.

 

Summary
Doesn't consider aspiring to zero carbon development is justified and compliant with national policy.
