Many planning departments now require a Sustainability Report or Energy Statement to accompany applications.
This may form either a pre-planning requirement or an approval condition once consent is granted.
We are vastly experienced in delivering bespoke sustainability reports for our clients.
For more detailed advice check out our blog article on Energy Statements
Why BE for your Sustainability Report?
Every planning department has differing requirements – our team of consultants and renewables specialists will provide a report to satisfy your particular policy requirement, and give you the very best chance of success.
We do not use generic templates and insert your name. Neither do we send you a glossy brochure all about renewables (they get up a planners nose you know).
We will get to understand your local policy, perhaps speak to your planning officer – then we will deliver a document which will support your application, delight your planners, and provide you with a valuable, informed document which you can trust to take your project forward.
What goes into a Sustainability Report?
A good sustainability report will require consideration of:
- All aspects of development form, which can contribute to securing high standards of sustainable development, including aspects such as energy, water efficiency and biodiversity gain
- Designing to increase the use of natural lighting, heat and ventilation, and for a proportion of the energy supply of new development to be secured from decentralized and renewable or low-carbon sources
- Securing reduction and increased recycling of construction and demolition waste and procurement of low-impact materials
- Designing for flexible use and adaptation to reflect changing lifestyles and needs and the principle of whole life costing
