Enplanner Low Carbon Planning Toolkit

The South Worcestershire Councils will use the online Enplanner Low Carbon Planning Toolkit developed by Encraft and the Carbon Trust to help assess submitted energy statements.

Enplanner is intended to provide assistance to planning applicants looking to demonstrate that they can meet the requirements set out in policy SWDP27: Renewable and Low Carbon Energy.

Enplanner allows the user to assess what renewable technologies are available and suitable in the area in order to meet the required generation of energy from renewable or low carbon sources.

Enplanner has been specifically commissioned to allow planning officers to effectively assess energy statements. Applicants are free to use alternative toolkits, however it may take officers longer to appraise energy statements which have not used Enplanner.

Visit the Enplanner website to access the toolkit.
