Applies to England
This consultation is the second stage of our 2-part consultation on proposed changes to Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) and Part F (ventilation) of the Building Regulations. It builds on the Future Homes Standard consultation by setting out energy and ventilation standards for non-domestic buildings, existing homes and includes proposals to mitigate against overheating in residential buildings.
It sets out proposals for a Future Buildings Standard, which provides a pathway to highly efficient non-domestic buildings which are zero carbon ready, better for the environment and fit for the future.
Note (21 January) a correction has been made to paragraph 6.7.14 on water treatment and water softening to better reflect the content of the draft Approved Document. We have also updated Question 118 which relates to the paragraph.
