Stratford upon Avon Energy Statements for Sustainable Low Carbon Buildings
In January 2008 Stratford upon Avon District Council introduced a new policy requiring that any planning applications within the district, which creates additional floor area, would need to demonstrate incorporation of sustainable drainage systems and include an Energy Statement.
For developments of 1 or more additional dwellings an additional requirement is that renewable energy production is incorporated into the design to allow a 10% reduction in the predicted Carbon Emission.
This incorporates wide ranging information which must demonstrate that sustainable construction techniques have been fully integrated into the design. This must be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the planning department in order for planning permission to be granted.
The requirement to show a reduction of 10% in predicted carbon dioxide output will involve a number of aspects which will need to be incorporated at design stage and we provide a full process Consultancy Service.
