My officers are currently considering the implications of this announcement and are awaiting more detail from Government on their future approach.

I will provide further guidance on how to interpret the London Plan's 2016 -2031 target for carbon reduction given the Government is no longer proceeding with Zero Carbon. In the meantime policy 5.2 remains in place.
