Sustainable Development Scorecard Security & Privacy Back

The Scorecard has been produced to assess the sustainable credentials of development proposals. It is intrinsically based within the context of the NPPF and its three equal pillars of the environmental, economic and social.

You are not required to have a background in planning, development or sustainability to use the Scorecard. The Sustainable Development Scorecard is a free, online tool available to all, from development practitioners and local authorities through to those who purely have a vested interest in the built environment.
