Lords Reject Government decision to scrap zero carbon homes

The Peers urged the Government to revert back to the previous long standing commitment of building zero carbon homes.

The new amendment to the Housing and Planning Bill was voted on Monday 25th April 2016 where it won approval by 48 votes during the Lord ‘report stage’. It called upon the Secretary of State to ensure “that all new homes in England built from 1st April 2018 achieve the carbon compliance standard”.
