Zero carbon amendment defeated but review within a year of Energy Performance Building Regulations
31 May 2016 10:17 am
The House of Lords failed to succeed with their amendment to the Housing & Planning Bill to reintroduce Zero Carbon homes standards, the Bill is now scheduled to pass into law on 12th May 2016. The amendment process did result in the Commons accepting the following as regards energy standards:
carry out a review of any minimum energy performance requirements approved by the Secretary of State under building regulations in relation to dwellings in England.
(this is my stictching together of the words in the Bill)
So by 12th May 2017 we are due to have a review of Building Regulations. Time to start lobbying.......................
