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.

Hi Peter,

Thank you very much for this, I can now view the documents on Google Drive.

There appears to be a misunderstanding as the response doesn't really address my request for information, but provides links to the London Plan and local plan, which I was already aware of.

The reason I am requesting information on London Plan policy 5.9 (2016) specifically is because there is variation in the way different boroughs implement this policy. I am requesting information on RBK's approach. I don't require detailed information, just a very brief summary to each of the points if possible, and I don't want you to spend too much time on it. If it would help, I can provide example responses from other boroughs.

Yours sincerely,
James MacDonald

Peter Smith, Kingston upon Thames Borough Council

Hi James,
If you have an example I Can then try and get a further response, but
can't guarantee.
Regards
Peter
