Low carbon housing schemes 'need more regulation'

Low carbon housing schemes 'need more regulation'
More regulation is needed if planned low-carbon housing targets are to be met in the UK, developers have asserted.

According to the Guardian, a report published by the National Trust and two mass-market builders has suggested that unless changes are made to the building industry to tighten up eco-friendly standards, the UK may not meet its target of making all new homes built in the country carbon-free by 2016.

Redrow Homes, Bryant Homes and the National Trust are currently collaborating on the 750-home Stamford Brook development, which will be located in Altrincham, Cheshire on trust land.

However, the progress report on the project has called for more action to regulate homebuilders to tighter green standards, such as better insulation and air-tight construction, where possible.

The planned properties at Stamford Brook will include heating and ventilation systems that cut down on carbon dioxide emissions and will aim to encourage the use of alternate means of transport, such as walking or cycling. ADNFCR-1235-ID-18480467-ADNFCR
