Redwood has been working with Iceni Projects (“Iceni”) to launch a new industry-led Sustainable Development Commission.

The brain child of Iceni, the SDC looks to define a practical method for evaluating the sustainable credentials of development proposals, encompassing social, economic and environmental factors. Operating within the context established by the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the SDC will seek to produce a universal ‘scorecard’ that can then be applied to developments to demonstrate their sustainable credentials.

The commission includes representatives from Land Securities, Crest Nicholson and Dentons, Birmingham City Council, Cherwell District Council and also Shaun Spiers, CEO of the Campaign to Protect Rural England. It is chaired by former MP Nick Raynsford, a consultant to Iceni.

Redwood provided communications support for the announcement, helping to secure coverage across a range of titles including an exclusive news story in Property Week followed by a wider two-page interview with executive director at Iceni Projects, Ian Anderson.

Interested parties should get in touch with Iceni for more information and watch the press for further updates –
