2 Contact details —Presenter name here — — —Website Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

3 Presentation contents —Other training modules in the series —Climate change adaptation – National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and National Planning Policy Guidance (NPPG) —Climate change adaptation and strategic planning – what are the issues? —What strategic plans can we apply this to? —Climate change adaptation and evidence base —Climate change adaptation actions in plans and policies —Further information sources Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

4 Other training modules in the series —Statutory drivers for adaptation —Making the business case for adaptation —Green Infrastructure as an adaptation response —How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather —Addressing weather and climate risks through neighbourhood planning —Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

5 Learning objectives —Understand national planning policy context for climate change adaptation. —Understand how adaptation to different climate risks can be promoted through strategic planning. —Know where to get data and information to ensure climate change adaptation is properly integrated into the plan evidence base. —Know how to develop plans and policies that promote adaptation to climate risks. Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

6 Climate change adaptation planning policy for strategic planning National Planning Policy Framework: —Local plans should take account of climate change over the long term. —Should consider a range of impacts, including flood risk, coastal change, water supply, biodiversity and landscape. —Manage risks through suitable adaptation measures, including green infrastructure. —Spatial allocations for development should follow a sequential approach to minimise flood risk, considering climate impacts. Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

7 Climate change adaptation planning policy for strategic planning National Planning Practice Guidance ‘Climate Change’ guidance for Local Plans: —Consider climate risks over the lifetime of the development when: —Allocating development sites —Developing design policies for developments and public realm —Climate risks could have implications for the following during the lifetime of the development: —Availability of water and water infrastructure —Flood risk and coastal change Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

8 CCA and strategic planning – what are the issues? Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance Libby Welch / Alamy Gary Telford / Alamy M. Brodie / Alamy

9 Adapting to climate risks - role for strategic planning Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

10 Examples of planning responses for adaptation in strategic plans Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance Peter D Noyce / Alamy geogphotosfilm / Alamy

11 What strategic plans can we deliver these responses through? City/Town/District level: —Local plan policies and land allocations and supporting evidence base and sustainability appraisal. —Supplementary Planning Guidance for local pan-wide policies. —Non-statutory strategies such as Green Infrastructure Strategies and Growth Strategies. Neighbourhood level: —Area Action Plans and Neighbourhood Plans —Supplementary Planning Guidance for site allocations —Masterplans for large development sites Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

12 Climate change adaptation and your planning evidence base Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

13 Data on climate risks to inform your evidence base Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

14 Spatial planning responses to climate risks identified in evidence base —Locating development outside of flood risk areas. —Ensuring new development is flood resistant. —Encouraging retrofit of existing buildings at risk (e.g. at change of use or refurbishment). —Minimising additional water demand. —Minimising the Urban Heat Island and heat stress. —Using green space to adapt to a changing climate – (e.g. % requirement, area plans or design guides, CIL). —Policies and SPD might cover anything not covered by building regs Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

15 Flood risk – spatial planning responses —Consider current and future flood risk in SFRA —Locate sensitive land uses away from areas of high flood risk —Design of buildings to reduce risk —Manage drainage around developments —Resilience in refurbishment as well as new build Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

16 Water resources – spatial planning responses —Ensure major developments have sufficient water resource. —Improving water efficiency of plumbing, appliances and water features. —Encourage reuse of grey water and rainwater harvesting where scale of makes it efficient to do so. Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

17 Overheating/Urban heat Island - spatial planning responses —Ensure buildings can cope with high temperatures through: —the use of landform, layout, design, construction materials and efficient ventilation systems; and, —appropriate design and use of vegetation and open space. —Green space, street trees and planting for example % requirement area plans or design guides for green space Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance Jeffrey Blackler / Alamy

18 Local Plan Policies - Examples Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

19 Supplementary Planning Documents - Examples Achieving resilience to climate risks through local plans and supplementary planning guidance

20 Strategic Land Use Decision Making - Examples

21 Conclusion – Key messages to take away —Develop policy that will work in practice – check with development management teams. —Also check your policy with agents, developers and other relevant external groups (e.g. EA). —Make policy and guidance practical and flexible. —Keep a focus on planning remit - don’t stray into building regs. —Ensure policies are sound – evidence is key to this. —Test run it so you can iron out any problems, then develop final policy and supporting SPD.
