Government launches Building Regs consultation1st Feb 2012
The government has published the long awaited consultations for changes to several sections of the Building Regulations - including Part L - as well as proposed changes to the Building Control system.
The Part L changes include proposals for tighter carbon dioxide emission standards for new homes and requirements for additional energy efficiency improvement to existing homes when extensions are built.
There are also proposed changes to Part P, on electrical safety in dwellings, and Parts A, B, C. K, M and N.
The draft Building Control changes are aimed at, among other areas, improving the private sector Approved Inspector arrangements and strengthening enforcement.
The Part L consultation ends on March 27, one month earlier than the other consultations which run to April 27.
