An Invitation to Participate in Research about Planning Permission for Domestic Retrofits

Dr. Suzy Nelson of the University of Westminster is conducting research on the extent to which difficulty in obtaining planning permission is an obstacle to the implementation of domestic retrofit projects.

The research involves interviews with built environment professionals about their experience of obtaining planning permission to upgrade the fabric of homes to reduce energy demand and to install low carbon heating and solar panels.

Interviews will be conducted via Zoom and last between 30 and 45 minutes. If you are interested in participating in the research, please contact Suzy on
