The consultation length was set for eight weeks on the basis of careful consideration. The tight timetable for delivering the Green Deal legal framework to provide business certainty was the primary reason. This has been accompanied by a comprehensive stakeholder engagement programme in advance of and during the consultation.

In line with best practice, we are also providing additional means for people to express their views, including a dedicated phone line, postal address, e-mail address, blog with commenting function and web chat with officials.
