Planning Portal is welcomed into the UK Business Council for Sustainable Development membership.
We are committed to attracting members from across value chains in the built environment, and the Planning Portal is providing us with a critical link to Planning and Planning data through this partnership.
Sarah Chilcott, Managing Director, says:
'We are thrilled to be a part of this esteemed group of leaders and innovators from the built environment sector who all share a common goal of creating a more sustainable future for all."
The UK planning process is crucial in supporting a more sustainable future for the built environment. Planning decisions can influence the type, location and design of new developments, which, in turn, can impact energy efficiency, carbon emissions and local wildlife habitats.
Our Chair Jason Longhurst comments,
"Planning Portal's involvement in UKREiiF, as part of their membership offer, provided a link to the wider components needed to create a more sustainable future, and make sure that we are seeing the whole picture when coming up with solutions."
By ensuring that sustainable principles are incorporated into planning policy and decisions, the UK can pave the way for a more environmentally-friendly and resilient built environment. Including these important planning considerations can lead to benefits such as improved air quality, increased biodiversity and reduced carbon footprint.
