Net zero carbon policies

Net zero carbon policies

I was wondering whether anyone had a record of all the Local Plan policies setting sustainable construction standards that exceeded Building Regulations (or exceeded the 19% in the PPG)?


I am aware of the adopted net zero carbon policies in the London Plan, Reading and Oxford, and the similarly ambitious emerging policies in Cornwall and Stroud.  Whilst I appreciate the national policy context is changing (with the Future Homes Standard etc), it would be helpful to have a full picture of those policies that had got through examination (and potentially also those that hadn't), and those emerging plans looking to set net zero policies.  I thought it was worth asking as this feels like a piece of work someone else might already have done!   


Many thanks

Hi Matt,

Not sure when you posted this but it just came up on my email. The Good Homes Aliiance were looking at complying a document setting where different Local Authorities were at in terms of Net Zero policies in Local Plans, so it may be worth contacting them.
