Following the technical housing standards review, the government has withdrawn the code for sustainable homes, aside from the management of legacy cases.

Legacy cases are those where residential developments are legally contracted to apply a code policy (eg. affordable housing funded through the national Affordable Housing Programme 2015 to 2018, or earlier programme), or where planning permission has been granted subject to a condition stipulating discharge of a code level, and developers are not appealing the condition or seeking to have it removed or varied. In these instances it is possible to continue to conduct code assessments.

Details of the new approach to the setting of technical housing standards in England were announced on 27 March 2015 and a new set of streamlined national technical standards were published. A planning written ministerial statement was also published which outlined the government’s policy on the application of these technical standards for plan making and decision-taking.

The code for sustainable homes webpage is available for the purposes of administering legacy cases only.
