About this book

This report shows how the BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), EcoHomes and the Code for Sustainable Homes are being used by local authorities to deliver their sustainable development objectives through the planning system. It includes results of a survey of over 200 local authorities across England, and the outputs from a workshop involving 50 local authority planners and others involved in strategic development. Case studies from eight local authorities illustrate the wide range of approaches being taken to overcome the barriers to sustainable development. There are clearly many concerns within local authorities trying to deliver sustainable development, and the report identifies a need for more clarity in policy relating to sustainability and the strengthening of some requirements, particularly building regulations.
