Sustainable design guide
A sustainable design guide has been prepared for developers, planning officers and building control to apply sustainable principles in new developments.
This guidance called 'Designing for sustainability - A summary of good practice' was consulted on and formally adopted in January 2003 by the council as supplementary planning guidance for development in Luton. This means it will be taken into account when applications for planning permission are determined.
However, under the new planning system this guidance will need to be replaced with a supplementary planning document (SPD) for the Growth Area which reflects more up to date sustainable development principles, construction methods and materials and in particular renewable energy and reducing the carbon footprint of developments.
