Details of the differences between the Sustainable Homes levels were given, from which it was noted that there was a substantial increase in the building costs between code levels 3, 4 and 5.  Level 3 represented a 25% energy efficient improvement compared to current Building Regulations, together with a requirement for a reduction in water use and the inclusion of other sustainable construction measures.  Accordingly, building to code level 3 significantly exceeded current planning policy requirements, which sought energy efficiency improvements of 10%.  Members asked that details of this information be sent to them for future reference purposes.

Approved as recommended.
