Domestic Buildings: Elmhurst publishes response to Future Building Standards Consultation
On 19th January 2021 Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) published the Future Buildings Standard consultation with proposals to improve the energy efficiency and ventilation standards of work in existing homes and changes to the assessment of overheating risk from previous versions of regulations. The deadline for responding to the Consultation is 13th April 2021.
Elmhurst welcomed the consultation on the remaining areas of Part F and L and were able to quickly summarise the changes for members which we published as a news item on the 1st February here.
Having digested members' views we have now created our ‘draft’ consultation response and ask members to have a read and either tell us what you think, or, even better, complete your own response. There is no one better placed to comment than the Elmhurst members who spend their lives analysing and improving the energy efficiency of homes.
Elmhurst is now seeking input on this draft consultation which will influence its final response before it is submitted by the 13th April deadline. The final submission will also be published for the benefit of members.
MHCLG have indicated the results of the consultation will appear in legislation in the December for adoption in June 2022.
