Locality Planning & Consulting has set clear targets and expectations that focus our activities on the areas where we can make the most positive impact or where risk of negative consequences, if not adequately addressed, is greatest.

It is inevitable that demand for housing, hospitals, transport, power and other vital infrastructure will rise. Whilst this is good news for our industry it must be safe and sustainable. Traditional construction methods are carbon-intensive – and the built environment is the single biggest source of global CO2 emissions. Collectively, our sector consumes around one-third of the world’s natural resources, generating vast amounts of waste and pollution in the process. The challenge is enormous - and no organisation can solve it in isolation. To this end, we are working with academic and industry partners to develop smarter processes and more sustainable products, delivering energy-efficient structures. At the same time we remain focused on reducing carbon and eliminating waste.
