Energy Performance Certificates

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether additional funding will be provided to local authorities under the new burdens principle to meet the new statutory requirements to provide (a) energy performance certificates and (b) display energy certificates. (252786)

Additional funding is being provided to local authorities under the new burdens principle to meet the new statutory requirements to provide energy performance certificates for their social housing only. No funding is provided for energy performance certificates for their other properties or for display of energy certificates since the new statutory requirement impacts on all sectors of the economy.
