Marianne Heaslip from URBED (Urbanism Environment and Design)
This is the final piece of bonus content in the LGC Net Zero series.
Rachel Aldred from the University of Westminster’s Active Travel Academy (ATA)
Rachel joins us to talk about a range of ATA projects focused on active travel and the reduction of car use. ATA research is aligned to practice and policy, and therefore useful to policy makers in local government. Projects seek to prioritise equity and social justice, and use a range of qualitative and quantitative methods, tools and data sources.

Chris Galpin from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy
Welcome to the next slice of bonus content in the LGC Net Zero series.
Chris Galpin from BEIS will explore how the heating sector is changing and how we can take advantage of this to create quality green jobs. With heating responsible for over a third of our emissions, decarbonising buildings needs to be a central pillar of your overall net zero strategy. Chris will talk about the major role heat pumps play, and how the national target of installing 600,000 heat pumps by 2028 can be achieved.
He’ll uncover the various grants that are available, and discuss the implementation of the Future Homes Standard in 2025. He’ll also explore some of the impactful things you can do within your decarbonisation strategy include introducing and encouraging low carbon heating apprenticeships, supporting the SMEs that dominate the heating sector, and ensuring installers comply with all building regulations.
