Carbon Reduction Targets

Question No: 825 / 2006

Darren Johnson

Now that the Government has acknowledged that the national target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 20% by 2010 is unlikely to be met, do you still expect London to achieve a 20% reduction by 2010?

Oral answer

CO2 Projections

Question No: 826 / 2006

Darren Johnson

How will DEFRA’s revised projections that UK CO2 emissions will be reduced by 15-18% on 1990 levels by 2010 (instead of the 20% target) affect the baseline assumptions and sectoral projections for CO2 reduction in the Mayor’s Energy Strategy? What additional measures will be required in order to make up for any shortfall?


I refer you to my oral answer to 825 / 2006.


The carbon dioxide reduction target for 2010 in the London Plan was modelled using a number of factors. The UK national target was not a direct input to the modelling, but did form part of the national policy framework at the time the Strategy was produced.


The UK government, in its Climate Change Programme 2006, has given the increased carbon intensity of national grid electricity and higher than anticipated levels of economic growth as being among the main reasons for their revised projection. These factors also affect London, and may therefore also impact on our ability to meet targets.


My response to the government’s Energy Review sets out how London can achieve the levels of reductions in carbon dioxide emissions required to meet a 60% cut by 2050: http://www.london.gov.uk/gla/publications/environment.jsp




Damage to Erith Marshes

Question No: 827 / 2006

Darren Johnson

What will you do to counter the recent damage to habitat and wildlife in the Cross Dyke section of the Erith Marshes Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature conservation, which is under the custodianship of Tilfen Land?


Tilfen Land has submitted proposals to Bexley Council for restoration of the damage to the Cross Dyke. Bexley officers are currently discussing this with the London water vole project officer and with conservation staff from the Environment Agency. My biodiversity staff are in regular contact with Bexley officers, and will advise if necessary, but at present my intervention is not required.




LDA Public and Green Space Spending

Question No: 828 / 2006

Darren Johnson

Can a breakdown be provided of the £20m spent by the LDA on public and green space improvements in 05/06?


The London Development Agency’s investment in public and green space is primarily part of the LDA’s wider physical development activity.  As such, it is not always feasible fully to disaggregate figures.  However, the LDA have sought to give the most accurate breakdown of investment in 2005-06 set out in the table below:

SPG on Sustainable Design and Construction

Question No: 829 / 2006

Darren Johnson

When do you now expect to publish Supplementary Planning Guidance on Sustainable Design and Construction?


I intend to publish the SPG on sustainable design and construction in late June.



LDA Sustainable Design and Construction Toolkit

Question No: 830 / 2006

Darren Johnson

How does the LDA intend to use its Sustainable Design and Construction toolkit? Will the toolkit be tested on specific LDA developments, and if so, which?


LDA intends to use the Sustainable Design and Construction Toolkit to ensure high standards of sustainable design and construction through LDA and partners' developments, both the private sector and registered social landlords. The toolkit will also be used to raise awareness about sustainability amongst development and regeneration managers and assist them integrating sustainability considerations into the development process. The toolkit will initially be tested in three areas - St Andrews hospital site in Bromley-by-Bow, the Landmark site in the Royal Docks and for masterplanning in West Ham.



Accessibility of Brockley Station

Question No: 831 / 2006

Darren Johnson

Will Transport for London work with the relevant rail bodies to ensure both platforms at Brockley Station become accessible for disabled passengers?


Responsibility for accessibility enhancements remain the responsibility of Network Rail and the existing Train Operating Company. However, Transport for London will continue to make further representations on a case by case basis for the limited financial resources within the 'Access for All' fund created for works of this nature and currently held by the Department for Transport.



Heathrow Expansion

Question No: 832 / 2006

Darren Johnson

Do you believe that the LDA is serving the interests of the business community in London by supporting the expansion of Heathrow, when only 22% of London businesses expressed a preference for Heathrow expansion in a recent London Chamber of Commerce survey?
