As part of our commitment to tackling climate change through the planning system we asked Faber Maunsell to carry out a ‘Local Authority Zero Carbon Barriers Research’ project in 2008. This is a piece of research in delivering Zero Carbon developments across Wales, moving us towards our aim of Zero carbon buildings from 2011.

The Research project involved:

  • a policy review;
  • a survey of local authorities;
  • the selection of two pilot authorities; and
  • a peer review workshop.

The final report has been published.
