Wasting Expensive Gas

Families would not be struggling to pay high gas bills if the government had implemented policies to develop renewable energy and insulate our building stock.

The UK's housing is draughty, wastes energy, and relies on fossil fuels that pollute our atmosphere.

We can upgrade Britain’s housing so that everyone can come home to a warm, comfortable home.

Government Going Backwards

The UK had a zero carbon homes policy - first announced in 2006. The Conservative government scrapped the regulations in 2015 in a move Julie Hirigoyen, chief executive of the UK Green Building Council, said was “the death knell” for the zero carbon homes policy.

It is short-sighted, unnecessary, retrograde and damaging to the house-building industry, which has invested heavily in delivering energy-efficient homes,” Hirigoyen said. “Britain needs more housing but there is no justification for building homes with a permanent legacy of high energy bills.

Six years on we are still going backwards. Let's press the government to see sense.
