One Planet Living in Sutton Katherine Hudson
One Planet Living Based on eco-footprints. Eco-footprint: The resources the planet produces for us (our bank balance) and how many of these resources we use (how much we spend). Can expressed as planets. Suttons eco-footprint is 3 planets - but we only have one! Globally we exceeded 1 planet in the mid 80s.
Ten Principles One Planet Living is based on ten principles. Sutton is the 1 st Council to adopt the ten principles in One Planet Living Action Plan for the whole Borough
Hackbridge Pilot One Planet Living pilot - Aiming to transform Hackbridge and create the UK's first sustainable suburb using One Planet Living as a framework. Hackbridge will combine community involvement work with a large scale programme of environmental upgrades to existing homes, and the development of 1100 new environmentally-friendly homes. Projects will cover energy use, waste and recycling, sustainable transport, health and food, water, habitats, local identity, economic regeneration and improving community wellbeing.
Hackbridge regeneration opportunities and challenges: 20% of Suttons new build will be in Hackbridge, 5 new development sites, 1100 new homes and mixed use. Home of BedZED. Excellent rail transport links, poor bus links/interchange. Negative effects of heavy through traffic. Good community engagement. Future Regional Country Park and Wandle. 1930s and Victorian suburbia with poor energy retention. Poor external physical environment. 4 Super Output Areas - within 30% most deprived nationally. Why Hackbridge
80% of people in the UK live in suburbs - this is a model for the rest of the UK. New build is only 1-2% per annum – this project includes existing housing. Eco towns have had a bumpy ride - this is a genuine alternative. Not just deep green issues - genuine sustainability including economic and social sustainability (jobs, health and affordable homes). Why Hackbridge
Community engagement has been a key element of the project with numerous consultation events (SPD, Future Hackbridge, Hackbridge Week, Masterplaning). Currently residents are on the whole supportive: 90% support the One Planet Living Vision, 90-91% support development on 4 of the proposed sites, 81% support development on the MOL, other key elements of the Masterplan received between 90%-96% support. Master Plan
Home Audits Offered home audits to all homes in Hackbridge 200 taken up Results: –68% of households have made a physical change to their home. –66% have made a behavioural change –Champions network (and case studies)
Low Carbon Zones It will bring forward our CO 2 reduction plan for Hackbridge. Reduce CO 2 by 20.21% by 2012 in the zone. The LCZ will include: –Home Audits, –Home Retrofits, –Eco Teams, –Multi Utility Infrastructure Strategy (MUSIS).
Conclusion We want to make Sutton a truly sustainable place by living within our fair share of the earths resources. By reinvigorating our commitment to tackling climate change and supporting wider sustainability issues via One Planet Living, we intend to make Sutton Londons best borough for quality of life.
