Paragraph 3.14 on delivery explains that most opportunities to address climate change are where most new development is proposed. New development, of course, represents a small proportion of the total built environment. It is vitally important to get that right but we would also encourage the authority to consider whether there are more mechanisms that might be employed through planning or other tools to help improve the sustainability of existing developments.
