Carbon-cutting homes plan ‘step in right direction’

Energy efficient: we also fit new homes with solar panels at developments like Graylingwell Park

Energy efficient: we also fit new homes with solar panels at developments like Graylingwell Park

We’ve welcomed a new plan from the government to help reduce carbon in a way that doesn’t also cut the supply of new homes for families.

Under previous proposals all new homes would have had to adhere to a strict code to make them zero-carbon – but the side-effect would be to make them so expensive to build that it could result in fewer properties being delivered.

We’ve asked the government to follow a different path and this year’s Queen’s Speech included an Infrastructure Bill with a new way to cut carbon that won’t harm housing supplies.

It involves allowing housebuilders to achieve some of the carbon savings off-site, which would be paid for at an agreed price per carbon tonne. This money would be invested into more green solutions such as retro-fitting older houses.

Andrew Richards, group managing director for Linden Homes, said: “This is undoubtedly a step in the right direction from the government.

“There seems to now be a recognition that the desire to develop zero carbon homes could have a real impact on housing delivery, at a time when we need to be building more homes, not less.”
