The next 15 years will be crucial if we are serious about climate change (and I am!) Huge and rapid improvements will be needed in our transport systems, energy supply and population growth. Your plan is tinkering at the edges. Obviously you have to be guided by central government but I think you need to be more far-sighted. For example we will need local energy production

12.2 fails to identify the level of emissions associated with the development industry. As these are very significant they should be shown, however, as the logical progression would be to reduce the rate of building, etc., the arguments must be constructed to consider future carbon emissions.

12.7 - the benefit to tourism is a speculative and unsubstantiated assertion.

I think the entirety of this section could be ommitted to avoid contention and repeating national policy

12.2 should state the published source data for the comparison. The more meaningful comparison for spatial planning purposes is surely the absolute per capita CO2 equivalent emission, not the proportion.
