PlanLoCaL (‘Planning for Low Carbon Living') is a major project and the focus of CSE's work for communities. At its heart is the recognition that, for communities to identify, plan for, and implement the best low-carbon solutions for their local area, they need various strands of support. To date, various strands of work under the PlanLoCaL 'umbrella' have come to fruition, and you can read about these on seperate pages of this website:...PlanLoCaL (‘Planning for Low Carbon Living') is a major project and the focus of CSE's work for communities.
