The long awaited publication of Part L will happen next week. For a preview see the presentations from the recent BRE launch event.

The September 2013 editions of Approved Document A andDocument C are also available for download from the Planning Portal.

PF2 is another initiative which has been on hold for some time. The government has now published the standard documentation to be used, with implementation starting with the Priority Schools Building Programme.

Details of the Government’s much discussed Help to Buy scheme can be viewed on their website as can the unimpressive Green Deal statistics. A response to this has been the All Party Parliamentary Group for Excellence in the Built Environment which has expressed concern that the Green Deal and ECO might deliver carbon reduction at a far lower rate than the policies it replaces.
