Detail of outcome
Summary of responses to the housing standards review consultation which was launched in August 2013 and closed in October 2013.
It was a fundamental review of the building regulations framework and voluntary housing standards which aimed to rationalise the large number of codes, standards, rules, regulations and guidance that add unnecessary cost and complexity to the house building process - while delivering quality, sustainability, safety and accessibility.
The review was undertaken by a wide range of cross sectoral stakeholder working groups and this consultation sets out their proposals on:
- water efficiency
- indoor environmental standards
- process and compliance
