Support Policy in Para 5.385

Para 5.386 states:

5.385 Previous Local Plan policy and supplementary planning documents have required new residential development, through the implementation of EcoHomes and the code for Sustainable Homes, to reduce energy emissions. Both of these have recently been superseded by changes to Building Regulations that have come into force for new dwellings. Building Regulations now take into account all regulated emissions, ie arising from heating, water heating, fixed lighting and ventilation. The Council is therefore relying upon Building Regulations to reduce energy emissions from new housing development in the future.

We welcome this policy position.
