The TCPA and RTPI have updated their joint guidance for local authorities on planning for climate change and are launching the fourth edition at this online event. The guidance provides a summary of the legal and policy requirements for planning for climate change (both mitigation and adaptation) for plan making and development management. The guidance covers the whole of the UK and provides an introductory resource for professionals working in the planning system.  

The new edition brings the guidance up to date with recent legislative and policy changes. It reflects the current best practices to encourage local authorities to be ambitious and centre climate change in their planning decisions and strategies. The guidance will be accompanied by an online case study hub.  

At the launch we will be joined by a range of speakers who will share their reflections on the urgency and opportunities of planning for climate change in the current context, and we will hear more about Cornwall Council’s ground-breaking Climate Emergency Development Plan Document. The TCPA will also provide an overview of the key updates to the guide. 

Speakers include:  

  • Joanna Averley, Chief Planner, DLUHC 
  • Richard Blyth, Head of Policy, Practice and Research, RTPI 
  • Robert Lacey, Planning Policy Group Leader, Cornwall Council  
  • Dermot Kehoe, Director of Transition and Communications, Flood Re 

The guidance and the event are available at no cost thanks to support from Flood Re.
