Environment and Carbon Emissions

To form a basement will require a greater volume of construction material, notably Concrete which has a high Carbon Dioxide Emissions rating.’ To that is added the removal of excavated material and soil by lorry from Sloane House & Sloane Lodge from an area of 700 sq meters by 18 meters deep.

The Environmental “footprint” of a basement project is therefore not trivial and should be viewed in light of the borough’s Environmental Strategy. ‘ArupGeotechnics Scoping Study/2008’

 

All commercial size developments with multi-storey basements in any residential areas should be  prohibited
