Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Supreme Court ruling has no impact on this area of policy as my London Plan sets out clear, complementary policies to encourage the use of gas-fired Combined Heat and Power systems, but only if they meet strict emissions standards and the development of which they are a part is 'air quality neutral'. Further detail is set out in the Sustainable Design and Construction Supplementary Planning Guidance available on the GLA website.
