A Housing Standards Review group has been set-up with the aim of looking into existing building standards to produce a simpler and condensed version of current rules. This would include the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The group is due to meet at the end of October and will include housebuilding professionals including the HBF.
Speaking at the HBF Technical Conference, Anthony Burd of DCLG said the group's work will be accompanied by a wider review of the whole issue of building regulations leading to "significant rationalisation of the whole of regulations. "
It is hoped that the group's review will go to consultation early next year and should be published during Spring 2013.
Is this a good move that will make understanding the myriad of regulations and standards clearer and more concise for all in the industry? Do you find it easy to crack the code?
