The London Plan - What You Need To Know
The London Plan is the government’s sustainability plan for Greater London. It is a detailed document which covers all aspects of planning, building and the environmental impact of developments.
First introduced in 2004, The London Plan has been updated several times, most recently in January 2017. These regulations will apply until 2036. Each Greater London borough has a degree of flexibility in terms of how they interpret the plan. However, many boroughs will go over and above the standard requirements.
Most boroughs will have their own sustainable development document, which will outline the specifics of how they intend to meet The London Plan. Furthermore, these requirements set by individual boroughs can include any number of calculations. For instance, they may request Energy Statements, Waste Management Statements and Water Consumption Statements.
