Zero-carbon Homes

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate she has made of the number of zero-carbon homes in England. (114459)

The Government do not collect this information centrally. The number of zero carbon homes built is currently very small. The code for sustainable housing and the new planning policy statement are designed to cut carbon emissions from new homes, and promote far more zero carbon homes until within 10 years all new homes built are zero carbon.
