Learning objectives

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

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.

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

Identifying future climate risks and extreme weather in your area

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)

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

Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning process - opportunities

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.


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

Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning process – key players

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
