How developments must help us combat climate change
On 25 October 2023 Hammersmith & Fulham Council adopted a new planning guide to help ensure new homes and developments are more friendly to the environment.
"Together with developers and residents, we want to transform the way we build, power and heat our buildings to ensure that new developments have no significant impact on our borough and the planet,” said Cllr Wesley Harcourt, H&F Cabinet Member on Climate Change & Ecology.
"This new guidance is another important step towards our ambitious target to reach net zero carbon emissions in H&F by 2030."
New and improved standards
The new ‘Supplementary Planning Document’ offers guidance to developers, landowners, homeowners, planning officers and other interested parties when preparing and assessing planning applications.
The new supplementary policies apply to all new build homes, extensions and retrofitting of homes, non-domestic and mixed-use developments. The new supplementary planning principles are designed to provide guidance to H&F’s Local Plan while addressing the climate and ecological emergency.
They reflect our vision for 2030, including our ambitious target to reach net zero carbon emissions in H&F by 2030.
