Stephen Williams announces plans to raise housing standards
Government plans will make it easier and cheaper to build homes to a high standard, Communities Minister Stephen Williams said today. Currently, house builders face a myriad of different standards to implement each time they build new homes in an area - with the standards imposed varying between areas, and often leading to duplication and even contradiction.
Publishing the government’s response to its housing standards review, the minister said the move would remove this confusion from the system.
