XSCH can provide advice on how to improve the sustainability of proposals, taking a holistic approach which reflects sound principles of spatial planning.

As part of this service we can:

  • Co-ordinate technical input into providing low and zero carbon technologies (LZCT) within developments and improving energy efficiency.
  • Research appropriate quantitative and qualitative sustainability performance indicators, such as design, accessibility and transport, greenspace, materials and procurement, pollution and construction, community, health and well-being and maintenance. 
  • Prepare sustainability statements to support planning applications or pre-application discussions.
