Overview of Planning support

Planning Support

Are you submitting for planning? Has your Local Planning Authority (LPA) asked for an Energy Statement or Sustainability Report? Do you have a list of conditions to meet approval? Then LEC can help meet these demands.

What is an Energy Statement?

Rising from the GLA (Government Local Authority) London Plan - all LPAs will ask for a compliant submission in accordance with the London Plan or a local policy. This will state a need to prove your development has means to show an overall reduction in carbon emissions by 10%-19% over and above building regulations.

Our statements follow the energy hierachy: Be Lean, Be Clean and Be Green approach. Our assessors are extremely experienced in local policies and also applying practical solutions to development. We are not afraid to question the need to exactly meet policy especially at the impact cost of the project. 

Our clients value the addition of LEC at the initial planning stages to help with BREEAM, Part L, Renewable options, Overheating and Energy Statements

Working together with the design team ensures greater flexibility in the long run and also smooths out that initial planning hurdle.
