BREEAM Communities is an assessment method that provides a way to improve, measure and certify the social, environmental and economic sustainability of large scale development plans by integrating sustainable design into the masterplanning process.
BREEAM Communities can also be applied internationally through a simple bespoke international process, where the flexibility of the scheme allows the assessment process to be adapted to your specific context. More information can be found here.
“BREEAM Communities is about developers and planners working together to achieve the most sustainable outcomes for major sites. It’s a solution to help move projects through the planning system and should be welcomed by everyone with an interest in securing sustainable communities” Sean Nicholson, Technical Director, WSP.

In November 2013 WSP held an event to discuss and showcase experiences of using the BREEAM Communities scheme. We heard from BRE Global, developers and local authorities about the benefits of using the scheme and how it has had a positive impact on site sustainability and for all stakeholders involved in the masterplanning process.
