London Plan policy 5.9

We're waiting for James MacDonald to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Under EIR 2004 regulations, I would like to request information regarding the council’s implementation of London Plan policy 5.9 (on overheating risk) in planning decisions, particularly in major residential developments.

Specifically:

1. What is the council’s approach to implementing policy 5.9, and has the council developed additional local policies in this area?
2. At the pre-application stage, what advice is provided to developers to help them address policy 5.9? For example, are developers made aware of GLA guidance on energy assessments and the ‘Early Stage Overheating Risk Tool’ in Appendix I?
3. Are developers expected to carry out dynamic overheating modelling as recommended in the GLA guidance?
4. How does the council monitor the success of these policies in reducing overheating issues in new build properties?

If any of these information requests are unclear, I am happy to revise my request with your advice as required under the regulations. I would like all information to be provided in an electronic format where possible.

best wishes,
James.

Dear Mr Macdonald

 

Thank you for your email dated 23 January 2021 where you requested
information about London Plan policy.

 

I can confirm that the London Borough of Enfield holds this information.

 

Request

Under EIR 2004 regulations, I would like to request information regarding
the council’s implementation of London Plan policy 5.9 (on overheating
risk) in planning decisions, particularly in major residential
developments.

Specifically:

 

1. What is the council’s approach to implementing policy 5.9, and has the
council developed additional local policies in this area?

 

2. At the pre-application stage, what advice is provided to developers to
help them address policy 5.9? For example, are developers made aware of
GLA guidance on energy assessments and the ‘Early Stage Overheating Risk
Tool’ in Appendix I?

 

3. Are developers expected to carry out dynamic overheating modelling as
recommended in the GLA guidance?

 

4. How does the council monitor the success of these policies in reducing
overheating issues in new build properties?

 

Response

Q1: Policy 5.9 of the London Plan is part of the development plan, and as
such forms part of the suite of policies that development proposals are
assessed against. To gain an understanding of the use of this policy in
development decisions, you can search officer reports which are available
on the council’s [1]website. In addition to London Plan policy, policy 56
of Enfield’s [2]Development Management Document deals with overheating.

 

We are currently developing an issues and options draft of the new Local
Plan. The new local plan will be in general conformity with the soon to be
adopted London Plan, which sets out the Mayor’s approach to addressing
overheating (including Policy SI 4).

 

Q2 and Q3 : It is the applicants responsibility when submitting a planning
application to ensure that they provide the information necessary to
demonstrate compliance with the relevant development policies. In issuing
pre-application advice we will normally direct them to the policies that
are relevant to the proposals that they are coming forward with.

 

Q4: The Council’s monitoring framework currently does not include
indicators measuring the performance of the Development Management policy
DMD 56 heating and cooling. This is an area we will explore when
developing our monitoring framework for the new Local Plan.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to:

 

Complaints and Access to Information Team Email

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9

PLEASE NOTE: As most staff are working from home, please email all
correspondence to us at [4][Enfield Council request email], rather
than posting  it, as there is likely to be delay in responding to
correspondence arriving by post

 

Kind regards
