I am pleased to assure you that flood risk, water efficiency and managing overheating are routinely considered in all planning applications.

However, the variety of measures and the difficulty in determining what proportion of the design of a building / incorporation of a particular measure could be attributed to managing future climate risks makes it difficult to produce an annual report similar to the CCMES.
