Climate change mitigation
Create a neighbourhood which has been designed to mitigate and adapt to the impact of global heating on the local climate.
Enable walking and cycling journeys and sustainable transport modes that will contribute towards improving air quality.
Create a socially sustainable neighbourhood with a mix of homes, employment, community space and access to open green spaces.
Achieve a minimum of 10 per cent biodiversity net gain.
Climate change is both a local and a global issue. There is a unique opportunity within the Whitehouse Street regeneration area to make sure the area is planned to adapt to the effects of climate change to create a climate resilient neighbourhood.
Whitehouse Street regeneration area is in a highly sustainable location with local amenities and transport connections within a short walking or cycling distance. A new cycle track and pedestrian connections will encourage and enable people to travel by foot or bike and reduce car dependency.
The Bedminster district heat network will be extended with the creation of a new energy centre serving the Whitehouse Street area. All development will be expected to connect to the district heat network to benefit from this source of low carbon heat.
Development will need to achieve a minimum 10 per cent biodiversity net gain. Given the likely low baseline biodiversity score for a number of development sites and the public realm, it is expected that significant gains can be generated across the regeneration area.
New sustainable urban drainage features and trees will be incorporated into the streets to mitigate the effects of more extreme weather events in future.
