Happy holidays for the Lords
The House of Lords had a real tidy up before they set off for their holidays yesterday. On their very last day, they announced the plans for changes to the Building Regulations – already delayed but at least this time there is a date for their introduction, next April. And although some of the proposals have been watered down, not all.
There are planning changes as well, which will probably make wind farms and solar farms a little more difficult to get through.
End of term report – could be worse, could do better. But what is depressing for those involved in construction and the environment is the implication that this is just ‘any other business’ to be tidied up at the end of term, rather than, as is the case, vitally important.
Let’s hope they are all a bit more engaged after the holiday.
