Sustainability Statements

Many Local Planning Authorities require a Sustainability Statement to be submitted as part of a planning application. A Sustainability Statement is provided to highlight how a scheme will address local sustainability policy. The Sustainability Statement typically includes the following information:

  • Energy efficiency of the building
  • Water conservation
  • Flood risk and drainage strategy
  • Community impacts
  • Transport
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Material usage
  • Pollution issues
  • Ecological aspects to enhance the proposed developments
  • Best practice management of the site

These reports are generally tailored to address specific/local planning policies, Supplementary Planning Guidance Documentation and DPDs.
