Planning reform to enable net zero and nature restoration

We need a planning system that delivers net zero and nature restoration. That’s why Gort Scott has signed UKGBC’s letter to government alongside 100+ other business leaders calling for the planning system to be brought in line with the Climate Change and Environment Acts.

The current system is not providing a consistent approach to handling climate change and environmental considerations – creating delays, costs, and legal challenges. With limited time left to amend the Levelling Up Bill, our window of opportunity is closing.

The built environment sector needs a reliable and consistent planning system to enable sustainable development without delay.
