Greenwich Builds low carbon homes on Robert Street

Greenwich Builds low carbon homes on Robert Street

An additional 30,000 homes are expected in the borough by 2030, with the potential to add significant new carbon emissions if the strictest emissions standards are not applied.  

Progress so far

  • through London Planning Policies we have raised the standard of new builds. A new major development in the borough achieved a reduction of 46% on average in comparison to building regulation compliant buildings in the financial year 2019/20
  • the future Greenwich local planning policy work will seek to raise the standards further through an updated supplementary planning document and reviewing the options for the next local plan
  • we are in the process of building approximately 750 zero or low carbon homes.
