Planning for Low Carbon Heat

Tuesday 12 March, Edinburgh

The way we heat our buildings is going to change dramatically in the coming years. The new Planning (Scotland) Bill, Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies and district heating regulations will have a significant impact on how planning approaches energy and place, with the potential to improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions and create new, local economic opportunities.

Zero Waste Scotland is hosting a free workshop in Edinburgh on Tuesday 12 March 2019 to help planners understand more about the changing policy landscape and how these changes might be addressed in practice. The session is free to attend for all planning professionals, whether in the public or private sector.

At the workshop, you will have the chance to hear about:

  • Developments towards the Planning (Scotland) Bill, the further rollout of LHEES and the introduction of district heating regulations
  • Feasibilities and the energy statement
  • Insights and experiences of planning for low carbon heat from case study speakers

The session is designed to help planning professionals network and share your experiences in an open and informal environment. Speakers will include SEPA, Arup, Zero Waste Scotland and more.

You can secure your place by clicking the green Register button towards the top right of this page.

Further workshops are planned for home builders and housing associations. If you would like to know more about these sessions, please contact Drew Murphy on
