Only 160 zero carbon homes built

The number of homes built in the last four years that would meet the Government’s definition of zero carbon is just 160.

Inside Housing reports that Government figures for England, Wales and Northern Ireland show 129 homes reached level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH), and 31 received reached code level 6.

Of these, 118 are in the public housing sector. All new homes built from 2016 will need to be zero carbon – which means reaching levels 5 or 6 of the CSH.
