How developments and buildings can be adapted so that they are
resilient to climate change and extreme weather
Learning objectives
— Understand how climate change could result in
high intensity and more frequent extreme weather
events.
— Know where to go to get information on how to
identify extreme weather risks in their area.
— Understand how buildings and developments can
be designed to adapt to these risks.
— Understand the opportunities available to adapt
buildings and developments through the planning
process.

What are the challenges for developments and buildings?

Identifying future climate risks and extreme weather in
your area
Principles:
— Use local plan evidence base and assessments undertaken for strategic sites
— Existing areas affected by extreme weather could be affected more in the future
— Areas not currently affected could be in the future, for example:
— Flood risk: low lying coastal areas and areas near rivers
— Water availability: in catchments that are highly urbanised, have lower than
average rainfall and rely on ground water
— Subsidence: areas with clay soils
— Overheating / Urban Heat Island: buildings in large urban areas, community
buildings occupied during the day, south facing buildings (in particular those
with only one aspect)

Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning
process - opportunities
There are opportunities to promote adaptation of
buildings and developments through:
— Planning policy in Local Plans and
Supplementary Planning Guidance
— Neighbourhood Planning
— Influencing design of development during preapplication discussions
— Use of planning conditions and enforcement
— New build development and refurbishment /
change of use
Sustainable construction standards include
adaptation measures – some developments are
required to or voluntarily build to these
standards.

Implementation of adaptation measures in the planning
process – key players
When considering how to adapt buildings during the
planning process it is important the following
parties work together:
— Local authorities
— Developers
— Project Design Teams
— Community Groups
— Statutory Bodies including EA, Water
Companies, Highways Authorities
