Housing standards review consultation (2012)

The housing standards review was launched in October 2012 following the housing and construction Red Tape Challenge, which was introduced in spring 2012.

It was a fundamental review of the building regulations framework and voluntary housing standards which aimed to rationalise the large number of codes, standards, rules, regulations and guidance that add unnecessary cost and complexity to the house building process - while delivering quality, sustainability, safety and accessibility.

The review was undertaken by a wide range of cross sectoral stakeholder working groups and this consultation sets out their proposals on:

accessibility
space
security
water efficiency
energy
indoor environmental standards
materials
process and compliance
