ASC urges consideration of climate impacts in Housing and Planning Bill

Lord Krebs, chairman of the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change (ASC), wrote to Baroness Williams of Trafford to urge her to consider the implications of climate change in the Housing and Planning Bill. The Bill was debated in the House of Lords in early 2016.

In the letter to Baroness Trafford, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Lord Krebs:

  • offers advice on climate change and flooding, heating and energy efficiency, the increasing health risks from homes overheating, and the role of housing and planning in reducing UK emissions.
