Question to the Department for Energy Security & Net Zero:
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, what steps her Department is taking to assist homeowners living in conservation areas to improve the energy-efficiency of their homes.
Work is ongoing to meet the commitment made in the British Energy Security Strategy to review the planning barriers households face when installing energy efficiency measures in conservation areas and listed buildings.
The review will ensure protection of local amenity and heritage whilst making it easier to improve energy efficiency in protected buildings. It will be published in due course.
