MHCLG issues ‘Future Buildings Standard consultation' for non-domestic buildings and existing homes
MHCLG has issued a new ‘Future Buildings Standard consultation’ which builds on the Future Homes Standard by setting out energy and ventilation standards for non-domestic buildings (L2), existing homes (L1b) and to mitigate against overheating in residential buildings and also some extra questions on outcomes generated from the previous consultation.
As before the intent is to have new regulations (interim) proposed “from 2021 and onwards” on the journey to 2025.
Its scope consists of:
Read the new consultation. (Deadline is 13th April 2021.)
Stuart Fairlie, Technical and Operations Manager at Elmhurst Energy comments: “We are delighted to see the long awaited consultation on L1b, L2 and Overheating. We will as always, thoroughly analyse the detail, fully engage with all our expert members before responding. It certainly appears that Government wish to get the new regulations implemented in 2021, which clearly is going to be tight. Looks like 2021 will be a very busy and exciting year for all our members.”
