Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

Hous­ing Min­is­ter Grant Shapp has un­der­lined the Govern­ment’s com­mit­ment to make all new homes zero car­bon from 2016.

Paul King, chair­man of the Zero Car­bon Hub and chief ex­ec­u­tive of the UK Green Build­ing Coun­cil says: “The Min­is­ter’s an­nounce­ment is very wel­come. We now have a clear and work­able way for­ward that builds di­rectly on the rec­om­men­da­tions of the UKGBC and the work of the Zero Car­bon Hub over the last two years.

“Con­sis­tency and clar­ity are es­sen­tial pre-req­ui­sites for con­tin­ued pri­vate sec­tor in­vest­ment and in­no­va­tion.”
