Exemptions from hard landscaping and boundary protection

Where a third party, such as the local authority, enforces strict constraints on the materials that can be used by the project for hard landscaping or boundary protection, and these materials do not achieve a Green Guide rating of A/A+, it is possible to exempt these materials from the assessment of this issue, on the condition that robust evidence confirming this is given.

In this instance the developer does not have control over the materials specified, therefore it is not appropriate to include them in the assessment.
