The sustainability checklist sets out key principles for sustainable development. If you are applying for planning permission, you can use this checklist to demonstrate compliance with the city of Southampton Core Strategy Policy CS20 (tackling and adapting to climate change).

The checklist must be completed for both new and conversion residential schemes of 1 or more units or non-residential proposals in excess of 500 sq. m.
