Woodknowledge Wales has responded to Welsh Government’s consultation on the standards new homes will need to meet in the future. We think the climate emergency demands a proactive approach from house builders of all types and we should be moving to a target driven approach. We think new homes need to be Net Zero Whole Life Carbon, set specific targets for carbon and energy and the performance of new homes needs to be independently certified. We also think standards need to be prescriptive but the way they are achieved should not. We need Building Performance Evaluation embedded in new home delivery. See our response HERE.
We’re looking forward to driving the agenda for better homes with you. Get in touch and let us know if you have a project idea that we may be able to help with or promote.
