Exemtion for one of builds for carbon emisions has been hailed as a success for smaller builders who now do not need to worry about meeting the zero carbon standard, which should promte zero carbon standards according to FMB.
The small sites exmeptoin should help smaller builders achive a wider range of builds without needing to conform to the of site elements to the zero carbon standard.

Brian Berry, Chief Executive commented: “The FMB is supportive of the zero carbon objective but we are concerned about the disproportionate cost implications for smaller house builders. The Allowable Solutions element of zero carbon will be added in 2016 and could result in smaller building firms paying out an additional £2,000 for every single detached home. It is therefore absolutely right that adjustments are made to ensure small local builders can build as many new homes as possible at a time when we are building only half the number of new homes required to meet demand.”

Berry concluded: “Let’s be clear – an exemption from Allowable Solutions will have no impact on the quality or energy efficiency standards of the new homes being built. These homes will still be built to the same energy performance standards as all other new homes but will avoid impeding the delivery of new homes by SME house builders.”
