Town Planning

An increasing number of Local Governments are requiring Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) reports to be submitted as part of the Planning Permit Application. This requirement is formalised by the Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) which refers to the consistent inclusion of key environmental performance considerations into the planning permit approvals process.

SBE is experienced in providing ESD reports (also called Sustainability Management Plans and/or Sustainability Design Assessments) to the satisfaction of the Responsible Planning Authority. We complete these assessments using the Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS), Green Star tools, STORM, MUSIC and other industry tools as required. As a part of these assessments we also conduct energy and daylight modelling simulations and develop Green Travel Plans.
