This Government promised to be the Greenest Govt ever. Increasingly, this comment seems to be more of a joke.
The Green Deal and ECO schemes have proven to be massively flawed, and near collapse.
The 2012 Part L upgrade of the Building Regulations were watered down so much, you can’t help but think what’s the point. All it did was knock more confidence out of small / self builders.
And now they are even talking about exempting some new homes from parts of the regulations. ( No wonders there’s a performance gap when no one high up considers energy reduction in homes a serious matter.)
So it appears that things that might make perfectly good sense get scrapped because “being green” is no longer as fashionable as it was a few years ago.
