The submitted Vision Document and Appendix 1 (Taylor Wimpey Environment Strategy 2021) sets out the industry leading range of measures and targets being introduced by Taylor Wimpey as it moves to significantly reduce carbon emissions through the businesses operations, the s

Policies SP2 and DP6 are grouped together because the principal issues they seek to address raise similar issues having regard to the role and purpose of the planning system in seeking to control and manage the nature of how buildings are constructed from a technical perspective, where issues of energy performance, technical standards, and carbon impacts arise. Put simply these are matters that can most effectively be addressed via the nationally prescribed Building Regulations rather than neces

How do you reach carbon neutrality when you build houses far from people's place of work. Development for Bristol should be as close as possible.

Development proposals must demonstrate how they will address climate change mitigation and adaptation, encourage the decarbonisation of energy and transport, and support the delivery of a carbon neutral North Somerset by 2030. Whilst we agree with the thrust of the policy objective, it is vitally important that the scope of the desired deliverables do not undermine the deliverability of viable development. Specifically, it is important for the Council to categorise priorities such that essential

* Prioritise active travel and effective public transport over car use wherever possible. - this should not say 'wherever possible' as developers will use this as a loophole. We should be firmly saying that all development must prioritise active travel and discourage car use in all ways at all times. * Development proposals must demonstrate how they will address climate change mitigation and adaptation, encourage the decarbonisation of energy and transport, and support the delivery of a carbon

SP2 Climate change - object The target of carbon neutral by 2030 is an ambitious aim which will not realistically be achieved by all developments at the start of the plan period. A transitional approach is therefore required if other objectives of the plan are to be pursued. The wording of policy SP2 is too onerous and suggests that proposals which do not meet the full requirements of the policy will be resisted. The policy wording should be amended as follows: "In order to reduce the overall e

I support these objectives, but wonder how many of these can be achieved while making choices affordable to all. For example, I believe that low cost and accessible public transport is key to encouraging the widest range of people to take up more environmentally friendly modes of transport.
