Planning for climate change: guidance and model policies for local authorities

This UK guide gives detailed guidance on the principles which should underpin plan-making and development management. It is recommended as the basis for comprehensive policy in the new, community-based local plans. It could also form the basis of local supplementary planning policy and should guide development management decisions. While it is specifically written for the UK audience (and has a strong mitigation focus) there are some principles and methods that can be replicated for the Australian context.

Adapting to Climate Change - The Local Authority Perspective
