Tackling climate change in Lancaster and Cornwall
Tackling climate change in Cornwall and Lancaster
Three Dragons, working with Quoda (formally Enhabit and one of the country’s leading energy efficiency consultancies) and cost consultants Ward Williams Associates, are currently advising Lancaster City Council. The council has asked our team to advise on ways they can achieve improvements to building fabric and energy demand, the necessary policy provision and the cost and impact on development viability of moving from the current Building Regulations towards net zero carbon. All this within the government framework and intended position to reduce carbon by 31% in new development by 2022, increasing to 75-80% by 2025 from current standards set out Building Regulations.
Three Dragons has also been providing advice to Cornwall Council about the viability implications of the council’s Climate Emergency DPD. This plan includes proposals for reducing carbon beyond the current national government proposals for Building Regulations Parts L and F, as well as exceeding the current national proposals for Future Homes.
