Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Representation ID: 24941

Received: 27/10/2017

Respondent: Historic England

Representation:

Include a specific policy relating to the inclusion of renewable technologies within Conservation Areas and with regard to historic buildings and the wider historic landscape. A sustainable approach should secure a balance between the benefits that such development delivers and the environmental costs it incurs. The policy should seek to limit and mitigate any such cost to the historic environment. Listed buildings, buildings in conservation areas and scheduled monuments are exempted from the need to comply with energy efficiency requirements of the Building Regulations where compliance would unacceptably alter their character and appearance.

The Suffolk Climate Change Action Plan (SCCAP), published in March 2017, identifies four key themes which are: A Business and Community Resilience; B Business Energy Efficiency and Renewables; C Community Energy; and D Domestic Energy Efficiency. The Borough Council should consider this strategy and the extent to which planning policies can contribute to realising its objectives.
The County Council would welcome measures which increase water efficiency, such as water butts.
