Just over one year on from publication of our first sustainability thought piece, “Sustainability and the New London Plan”, things have moved on significantly in the world of sustainability, mainly around carbon and retrofit. Today, the City of London (CoL) have published their draft Planning Advice Note (PAN) on Whole Life Carbon Optioneering. The consultation started today following approval by Members of the Planning and Transportation Committee on 7 June 2022.
The Consultation is open until 30 September 2022. The PAN seeks to promote consistency in reporting as the CoL look to create a public dashboard for data sharing on the topic of Whole Life Carbon. The draft guidance is extremely instructive in the context of carrying out whole life-cycle carbon options appraisals to inform development decisions around embodied and operational carbon and we welcome its publication.
