Housing: Standards

Volume 503: debated on Wednesday 6 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what estimate he has made of the cost of building a home which meets the (a) Lifetime Home Standard and (b) Code for Sustainable Homes Level (i) four, (ii) five and (iii) six. (307887)

In “Code for Sustainable Homes: Impact assessment—December 2009”, published 18 December 2009, page 73, figure 38 sets out the range of costs for building to the Lifetime Homes Standard as being between £575 and £875. This impact assessment supports the consultation on the Code for Sustainable Homes.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Peterborough (Mr. Jackson) on 10 November 2009, Official Report, column 278W.
