Embedding Sustainability into Stevenage Borough Council

Sustainability is a huge topic and covers many areas of the council’s activities. There is still much that we need to do in the future, but these pages highlight what is already being done to help achieve the goal of sustainability.

Planning Policy & Sustainability

Stevenage Borough Council has a Design Guide which covers sustainability in relation to new development in the town.

Cycle to Work Scheme

To promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution, the 1999 Finance Act introduced an annual tax exemption, which allows employers to loan cycles and cyclists’ safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit.

Stevenage Borough Council is looking into the viability of making use of this scheme in the future.
