To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what plans he has to change building regulations to mandate all new-build homes to be eco-friendly through the installation of (a) solar panels (b) sustainable heat pumps and (c) advanced insulation.
The Government has committed to introduce a Future Homes Standard by 2025. This means new homes will be future proofed, with low carbon heating and lower energy use through high levels of energy efficiency. We propose that new homes built to the Future Homes Standard from 2025 should have carbon dioxide emissions up to 80 per cent lower than those built to current building regulations standards.
