                            Brent Sustainable Development Checklist
         Sustainable development is often-talked about, but can be harder to appraise in practice.      This
         Checklist is a practical way of testing the sustainability of proposals, by assessing them against key
         sustainability objectives and criteria, which aim to ascertain a proposal's positive or negative effects. It is
         based on the idea that a sustainable design approach, embraces the 11 basic principles outlined in the
         introduction to SPG19 (See page 2). Relevant planning policies in the UDP are listed within each section
         for reference.
          You should complete this checklist if your proposal meets or exceeds these thresholds; tall building (25m),
          1000 sq.m. floorspace, 10 residential units, housing/education or health schemes in Air Quality Management
                          Areas (AQMA), and/or demolition of the above sizes/scales of development.

         What is Sustainable Development?
         Sustainable development is about achieving environmental, social and economic objectives in a balanced
         way that can be enjoyed by everyone, now, and in the long-term future.
         This checklist has these benefits:
         1. It makes applicants (and officers) more aware of what sustainable development means and the sorts of
         proposals they should submit or seek, to deliver locally.
         2. It allows the likely effects of proposals to be identified and potentially improved.
         3. It integrates environmental and socio-economic factors of sustainability. Schemes that have multiple
         benefits on all these aspects will score best.
         4. It provides a 'level playing field' - will be used on all schemes at, or above, the SPG19 threshold.
                This form can aid you in making your own pre-application assessments and design decisions.
           SELF-ASSESSMENT - PLEASE COMPLETE THIS CHECKLIST FORM AND SUBMIT WITH YOUR
          PLANNING APPLICATION. YOUR CASE OFFICER WILL CHECK IT, AND MAY ASK FOR EVIDENCE
                                 TO VALIDATE YOUR SCHEME'S RATING.
         How The Checklist Works
         THE INTERACTIVE ELECTRONIC VERSION OF THE CHECKLIST SIMPLIFIES THE CALCULATIONS.
         Simply click on the relevant tick boxes to complete the form. Your score for each section will be shown in
         the subtotals (indicating particular strengths & weaknesses) and your final score and percentage
         (indicating overall level of sustainability) are at the end of the checklist. You can print a copy of the
         completed form or email it to your case officer.
         IF COMPLETING IT MANUALLY: Add points for all ticked boxes into sub-totals, then add subtotals into a
         grand total. Divide the result by 10 to give your proposal's final percentage.
