Reducing CO2 emissions
- Summary Overheating Planning Application Requirements
- Reducing carbon emissions through planning applications
All major planning applications are required to submit an Overheating Assessment for areas where people sleep or spend a significant amount of time. The summary guidance note below sets out the requirements for the Dynamic Thermal Modelling and what information should be included in the report.
The full checklist of the required information to be submitted as part of a planning application is available on the Planning and Building Control pages.
We, and 4 other London Boroughs, commissioned a report from London Energy Transformation Initiative (external link).
The report provides evidence on the potential to achieve greater carbon reductions on-site through new development. The report was finalised in May 2020.

3 main issues
The report addresses 3 main issues:
- Ability to achieve the zero-carbon target on-site for a range of development categories
- Appropriateness of the current carbon offsetting approach
- How the carbon offsetting price can encourage greater carbon reductions on site
New Local Plan
The report forms part of the evidence base for our New Local Plan. Feedback on the report was first requested as part of the New Local Plan: First Steps Engagement.
We are considering how we can implement the report’s recommendations in Haringey. We will seek feedback from stakeholders as part of the next engagement step on the New Local Plan.
