Introducing the UGF - CATCH UP ON THE EVENT
This session provides an introduction to policy G5, including what the aims of the policy are, what the UGF is, and how it works. It will also include examples of how urban greening delivered to meet the UGF can be designed to respond to other London Plan policies and provide benefits such as surface water management, greener streets, or more space for nature.
This is one of three consultation sessions on the UGF London Plan Guidance. It is open to all but best suited to anyone who wants an overview of Policy G5 and the supporting UGF London Plan Guidance to better understand what the UGF is and how it works, and how it relates to other policies in the London Plan.
Applying the UGF to development proposals - CATCH UP ON EVENT
This session will take a detailed look at the sections of the UGF London Plan Guidance which cover how to use the UGF tool, including how to categorise and measure surface cover types for the UGF calculation, as well as how to submit and review a UGF scheme as part of a planning application. We will also discuss the information sources available to help inform urban greening design choices to optimise the benefits a scheme provides.
This is one of three consultation sessions on the UGF London Plan Guidance. It is open to all but best suited to those involved in the design and delivery of new developments such as developers and their planning consultants, housing associations, ecologists, landscape architects, and other professionals.
Applying the UGF for Local Planning Authorities
This session will focus on the role and responsibilities of Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) in applying the UGF. We will look in detail at the submission requirements for the UGF, how to evaluate a UGF proposal, and how LPAs can approach setting local UGF targets in their Local Plans and the data and tools available to help to do this.
This is one of three consultation sessions on the UGF London Plan Guidance. This session is for development management and planning policy officers, ecologists, and landscape architects from London boroughs.
