In recognition of the important role planning has to play in responding to climate change, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets commissioned Land Use Consultants (LUC) and the National Energy Foundation (NEF) in February 2007 to undertake a study investigating the potential for renewable energy and biodiversity enhancement opportunities within the borough.
The Tower Hamlets “Sustainable Energy & Enhanced Biodiversity Study” was “highly commended” in the Climate Change category at the Royal Town Planning Institute Planning Awards 2008.
