We remain committed to bringing the Future Homes Standard into force in 2025 as planned and will publish a full technical consultation this year.

A full impact assessment on the Future Homes Standard will be carried out ahead of implementation and published online.  The impact assessment will consider any housing viability impacts as a result of this policy. Government's intention is to publish a draft impact assessment alongside the consultation in 2023.
