Answered By: 
The Mayor

My zero carbon homes policy applies to any residential development comprising ten or more dwellings.  In conjunction with the boroughs, community energy organisations have an important role supporting the delivery of renewables (and potentially energy efficiency measures) in such schemes and we will encourage this through the London Environment Strategy and future planning guidance.
