Planning for the Future Homes Standard
The government have confirmed two steps towards the FUTURE Homes Standard requiring:
- a 31% reduction in carbon emissions in 2021
- a 75-80% reduction in emissions after 2025 and banning the installation of new gas boilers
With most large developments having a development cycle way beyond 2025 how do we plan and deliver buildings and energy infrastructure now for a development that spans two sets of Building Regulations and myriad different local planning requirements?
