Main question

Caroline Russell

Outside of an offset fund payment, are there other offsite actions that developers can take to achieve the Zero Carbon Homes target?


Answer

The Mayor

Yes, in line with London Plan policy 5.2, developers can directly retro-fit measures such as solar photovoltaic panels on a school or other public building.

Social housing providers have also expressed interest in retro-fitting their existing stock located within the same borough as the development proposal.
