The Royal Town Planning Institute and Town & Country Planning Association have published The Climate Crisis – a guide for local authorities on planning for climate change.
This introductory level resource provides an overview of UK policy and legislation which can be used to address climate change at a local level and explains how this should be interpreted in local development plan and development management processes.
This guidance replaces the previous edition published in 2018. The TCPA, RTPI and ClientEarth have also produced a short briefing document which outlines the key overarching legislative and policy requirements on climate change for local planning authorities in England. This can be downloaded here.
