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 How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather

5 Learning objectives —Understand how climate change could result in high intensity and more frequent extreme weather events. —Know where to go to get information on how to identify extreme weather risks in their area. —Understand how buildings and developments can be designed to adapt to these risks. —Understand the opportunities available to adapt buildings and developments through the planning process. How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather

6 What are the challenges for developments and buildings? How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather M Brodie, AlamyPSL Images, Alamy

7 Identifying future climate risks and extreme weather in your area How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather Principles: —Use local plan evidence base and assessments undertaken for strategic sites —Existing areas affected by extreme weather could be affected more in the future —Areas not currently affected could be in the future, for example: —Flood risk: low lying coastal areas and areas near rivers —Water availability: in catchments that are highly urbanised, have lower than average rainfall and rely on ground water —Subsidence: areas with clay soils —Overheating / Urban Heat Island: buildings in large urban areas, community buildings occupied during the day, south facing buildings (in particular those with only one aspect)

8 Adapting buildings and developments to increased flood risk How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather Flood avoidanceFlood resistanceFlood resilienceFlood recovery

19 Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning process - opportunities How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather There are opportunities to promote adaptation of buildings and developments through: —Planning policy in Local Plans and Supplementary Planning Guidance —Neighbourhood Planning —Influencing design of development during pre- application discussions —Use of planning conditions and enforcement —New build development and refurbishment / change of use Sustainable construction standards include adaptation measures – some developments are required to or voluntarily build to these standards.

20 Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning process – key players How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are resilient to climate change and extreme weather When considering how to adapt buildings during the planning process it is important the following parties work together: —Local authorities —Developers —Project Design Teams —Community Groups —Statutory Bodies including EA, Water Companies, Highways Authorities
