Following on from my piece on Persimmon Homes, the below is well worth a read with your sarnie.
It is especially interesting to read how little is expected to change regarding specification red-tape, legislation and sustainability targets.
Europe has led the world in improving building standards and the UK has played a key role in developing these. Will that all change now? Thomas Lane, editor of BDOnline, explained why useful ‘red tape’ will survive. “In terms of legislation, much European legislation is embedded in UK law. For example European sustainability legislation is implemented through building regulations. Changing this would involve rewriting our own regulations. Leaving Europe doesn’t mean chucking away all that work and while there will be some change to regulations much of this will stay the same, particularly if we want to continue trading with the European bloc”.
