Relaxed planning on solid wall insulation

A recent revision of the planning rules has provided a positive lift for the Green Deal, with the planning regulations for solid wall insulation eased.
The visibility of solid wall insulation has been highlighted as an important factor by the energy minister, Greg Barker, who said that its application on properties could draw others into the scheme. “There is a big learning exercise for consumers and people in the trade as well about just how fantastic solid wall insulation products have become,” Mr Barker said.
The announcement confirmed that the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Communities and Local Government had jointly agreed an amendment to planning rules, designed so that most solid wall insulation projects will not need planning permission. “It’s really the solid wall market that is going to be most impacted by the Green Deal,” Mr Barker said. “From the get go we will have a transformation in solid wall installation numbers.”
