The Council’s Supplementary Planning Document “Climate Change and Pollution” previously guided developers on issues relating to climate change. However, this is no longer part of the development plan. Given the urgency of climate change the Council should prioritise new guidance to focus developers on addressing this issue at the inception stage of development.

As per the response to question #1, having a specific Policy around the management and improvement of green space would help contribute to this objective. Bedford should look to create a green ‘standard’ that developers follow to make the most of the environmental assets the Borough has to offer.

Climate change is complex and fast moving. Natural England have recently published the second edition of its Climate Change Adaptation Manual, which addresses the gap between the general principles of climate change and how adaptation to climate change may work: http://publications.naturalengland.org.uk/publication/5679197848862720. To note, there are now specific sections on Green Infrastructure and Access and Recreation. Nature-based Solutions (NbS), can contribute to reducing net greenhouse gas emissions as part of the government’s wider strategy for achieving Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2050. Achieving ‘Net Zero’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 is a statutory requirement for the UK and England; this will require major changes in the way we manage the natural environment, alongside changes in energy, transport and other sectors. NbS is an increasingly prominent concept to describe actions that address societal challenges, such as climate change, in ways that benefit both people and biodiversity. Not all environmental management for Net Zero is true NbS and not all NbS deliver climate change mitigation. Woodland creation and peatland restoration offer the largest potential contributions to Net Zero. New woodland takes up carbon from the atmosphere via photosynthesis, and peatland restoration stops stops GHG emissions from the oxidation of degraded peat. The Reducing UK emissions: 2020 Progress Report to Parliament (https://www.theccc.org.uk/publication/reducing-uk-emissions-2020-progress-report-to-parliament/) includes new advice to the UK Government on securing a green and resilient recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic. It recommends that Ministers seize the opportunity to turn the COVID-19 crisis into a defining moment in the fight against climate change. It’s report highlights key investment priorities such as tree planting, green infrastructure, and infrastructure to make it easy for people to walk, cycle, and work remotely.

Agree that further guidance for developers would be useful. There is much valuable guidance on the Planning Portal/Gov.uk and Natural England website (specifically on the use of green and blue infrastructure to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change). It should also include guides on how the sequential test will be applied to take into account climate change over the lifetime of development, how managed adaptation measures can be incorporated to ensure that development is future proof, how development can feasibly contribute the net reduction in flood risk.

It is considered that the provision of guidance for developers on how to respond to climate change would be useful in providing clarity on the expectations of the Council on this matter. It is considered that any guidance should focus on matters of planning rather than duplicating requirements covered by alternative regimes such as Building Regulations.

4.11.1 Gladman always encourage the sustainable development of housing developments to mitigate against climate change. The Council should continue to take account of climate change and continually update guidance in relation to the NPPF, PPG and other central government guidance. 4.11.2 Stakeholders within the property and construction sectors would welcome regular updates to reflect such changes and to communicate the LPA's position on new technology for housing that could help to mitigate climate change. 4.11.3 Gladman encourages that any updates on technological or policy responses to climate change be centred around the three pillars of sustainability (economic, social, environmental) so as to create balanced and reliable solutions.
