Supportive of the climate change objectives, which has been worked into proposals for Hall Farm. A Sustainability Charter for the site will be developed to set the vision and the strategy to deliver various sustainability initiatives and measures. Net Zero Carbon and the longevity of measures will be considered throughout to respond to the climate emergency and build in the appropriate long term mitigation and adaptation needed.

para 2.8 - All housing approved should be of the highest environmental standards available at the time, regardless of the increased cost. It does not seem sensible to specify the standard now for 2030, but it must be of the highest standard available in the UK housing market at that time

Parts 2.2, 2.5, 2.8 - Climate change, Transport, Natural Environment & Biodiversity. The Local Plan needs to tackle the issue of increasing car and van miles head-on by avoiding unnecessary development in villages where there are no sustainable alternative transport methods available.

Greater emphasis should be placed on the need for sustainable design features – energy efficient buildings, using renewable energy technologies and built to low carbon emission standards.

The planning system is only one of the means by which climate change can be mitigated – it is not a universal panacea; much that can and should be done lies outside it. The Trust agrees that paras 2.3-2.5 are the right climate change issue to focus on and considers paragraphs 2.5 to 2.8 to be a suitable summary.

Green energy. Why aren't all new homes built incorporating solar panels as standard? This is linked to the maintenance and improvement to our existing tree stocks.
